When you refer to scales, it consists of 2 elements. One is tonality and the other is modality. Tonality is with reference to the sound and modality is the intervelic pattern. Consider a major scale. The modality is the same which means the internallic difference is always WWH-W-WWH irrespective of whatever root the scale may take. But as you change the root, the key changes or the sound or the tonality changes. C Mjor, D Maor, F Major all sound different, so they are of different tonality but of same modality. If you take a C Major Scale and it's relative minor A minor scale. Both of these have the same notes. So they are tonally the same but modally different. That's why it even sound like a different scale inspite of playing the same notes. Since Sa in Sa, Re, Ga, Ma did not match exactly to C, then how would you link it to it's western counterpart. So I compared them with modality rather than tonality. I could be totally wrong. It's just my interpretation. I myself am an almost zero is both of these music both by theory and practice.
A Scale has 8 Positions In All .. n 18 Notes In It .. For Example For G Major Scale
G A B C D E F# G .. That Natural G Major Scale n Second Poistion Of The Scale n Further It Is Ionian MODE Alsoo ..
First Position Of G Major Scale Is
F# G A B C D E F#
2nd Postion (Natural Position Or Very Much Known Postion Of Major Scales)
G A B C D E F# G
And So On ..
And The Whole Major Scale On One Octave Would Be
G A B C D E F# G A B C D E F# G A B C ( 18 Notes)
Further .. For Beginners .. Thoeritically U Must Have To have Idea Of Creating Chords Frm .. Or how They have Formed
Just Take a Major Scale Further Take Major Scales
1st note Which Is Root note , Harmonic Major 3rd Note , n Fifth .. Is Ur Major Scale .. Lets Work It FOr For Chords now .. :-)
For G Major Chord
Natural G Major Scale
G A B C D E F# G Take 1st , 3rd n Fifth note .. Which R
G B D .. This Is ur G Major Chord ..
For C major
C D E F G A B C Taking 1st , 3rd n Fifth note
C E G .. This Is C Major Chord .. but In Open Postion U Actually Don't hold All Three Notes .. V holds .. 2 C's n One E
n Plays .. G Open In this Chord .. Check It Out .. :-)
Exercises .. r Take a Sheet .. Write Major Scales n Create There Major Chords .. n Same For minor Chords .. n Most Of The Things R Derived Frm basic Scales .. Beginners Like Me .. Should Have To b Aware Of All These Stuff .. :-)
