Chord Scale is very much important to understand for every musician however I saw a lot of musician don’t have any idea about this. Today we will talk about Major Chord Scale In Detail.

What is Chord Scale?

A chord scale is a collection of chords that are built from a particular scale, for example, a C major chord scale would include chords built from the notes of the C major scale (C, D, E, F, G, A, B)

The chords in a chord scale can be derived using a specific formula, such as taking every other note of the scale to form a triad (a chord made up of three notes), or using more complex chord structures.

Major chord scales:

These are built from major scales. The notes of a Major scale are arranged in a specific pattern of whole and half steps, also known as W-W-H-W-W-W-H And This follows as following : Major – Minor – Minor – Major – Major – Minor – Diminished – Major

List of Major Chord Progression

A chord progression is a sequence of chords played in a piece of music. The most common type of chord progression in Western music is the major chord progressions. This progression is built on the foundation of the major scale. A songwriter/ musician / Guitarist can mix and match chords from other scales and modes to add variety, tension, and release to the chord progression.
