Join Mike Marshall for an in-depth discussion in this video Fun with theory, part 2, part of Mandolin Lessons with Mike Marshall: 1 Fundamentals.
- Alright, we're going to go now to another key.…Well, we're really working this I'll Fly Away,…we're going to fly away.…So now we're going to go to the key of C.…So what are the three principal chords in the key of C?…C, D, E, F, and G,…1-4-5, C, F, and G.…So time for a new chord,…the F chord we haven't really done yet.…Here's the first one I ever learned.…5th fret, 3rd fret, open, and 1st fret.…
That's a great little F chord.…Okay, here's I'll Fly Away in the key of C…and I'll play the chords first.…Nice and easy, I think we're at 60 beats per minute.…Key of C, I'll Fly Away.…C, F, and G.…Comes the F.…
And back to C.…♫ I'll fly away, oh glory…F…♫ I'll fly away…♫ Now back to C.…
♫ When I die, Hallelujah by and by…♫ C to D and back to C ♫…Alright, so I hope that helps you understand…something about the theory of music.…Three different keys, all I'll Fly Away.…Well I can't say enough about how important this is.…You now start to begin to learn something…about the mechanics and the science of music.…
1-4-5 is very important…
