Since the best way to play your own sweeps is to know how to construct their chord forms, and work them into progressions, I will deviate from general sweep picking form for now and delve a bit further into chord theory!
So now that you have a C major scale (CDEFGAB) all set up using the whole step formula from last time, now you can make chords off it using the notes found in the scale. Remember those interval thingys I brought up briefly? Well now they have a purpose. Certain intervals sound happy, some sound sad, its just how music works. Since there are seven notes in the C major scale, lets assign them number values, just to make this simple, without dragging in "major thirds, perfect fifths" and stuff. So now we can think of the major scales INTERVALS as being 1-2-3-4-5-6-7, one being the root and so forth. Now to construct chords, we will take certain combination's of intervals that sound good together, and have some easy formulas to memorize so you can make them on the fly!
But not right now lol. Maybe later, or definitely tomorrow. And, as you know the drill, comment to rage, praise, or give suggestions on where you want the lessons to go next. And Allen, circle of fifths will be soon, first I have to build up the general knowlege!
