Note

It is very important that the theory of music and the slide rule is understood on the Keyboard first, before looking at the Guitar


1. The whole concept of the slide rule is that the musical notes have been substituted by the blue numbers on the insert of the slide rule


2. The Major Scale has 7 notes.  The 8th note is the same letter as the 1st note, but higher in pitch, ( sound.) The 8th note of a scale is called an Octave


3. To find any key, slide the insert so the number 1. on the bottom line is over the the note you want on the keyboard

   e.g. To find the Major Scale of the key of C. ( the C Major Scale.) Follow the example number 1. Here


Read everything and study all the Diagrams and examples in this Manual

Soon you will find understanding all this stuff really easy, and you will realize just how powerful the Musical Educator slide rule for guitar and keyboard really is


Some notes have Two Names. e.g. the note in-between C and D is called C# (C Sharp) or Db (D Flat)  Because this note is sharper ( higher,) in pitch than C. and this note is flatter ( lower,) in pitch than D.

These are the black notes on the Keyboard

These notes have two names but only the one sound

These notes are called Enharmonic notes
