Introduction to Chordscale Theory


Chordscale theory describes the interdependent relationship of harmony and melody. It states that chords serve specific roles within a key which determine the scales that are associated with those chords which, in turn, represent a palette of available notes that can be used for improvisation. This theory is fundamental to learning how to improvise.
