Well yeah, I think I will stick myself to just learn the scales and later focus on chords. What vert says above this is that I don’t need to get my mind in too much stuff at once.Functional wrote: ↑Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:32 amI think ideally you want to learn chords as you're learning the scales. Now I might be entirely off here, but that seems to be the pedagogically accepted way.
With that being said, I think there's also two ways of going about: if you learn how to construct different chords on their own right and you also have learned the scales, well, you can just take any note and get the chord like that. But I really don't know if that's effective vs. learning chords per scale.
There's one piano course which I am trying to learn that basically has a module for each scale and in every case it goes through the chords, arpeggios etc which is not really "new information" but it wants you to practice them anyway.
But learning like that will take you a loooooong ass while. My working memory is shite, hence it takes ages for me to progress with building up the muscle memory for each scale.
I’m very curious of what piano course you talking about. I’m now practise with C minor natural and play it up and down, down and up and random under a metronome. I have the time to learn the piano but I also want to see some improvement. If I look on how I played last year piano and now I see little to no improvement. I try to be patient though. My short-term memory is very bad, but my long-term memory is pretty good.
