0:03:170:03:20

# Don't worry, don't worry at all. #

0:03:200:03:25

Thank you so much for watching, you guys.

0:03:260:03:29

I'm sure you sounded like angels.

0:03:290:03:31

For sure.

0:03:310:03:32

-We'll see you soon.

-Peace out.

0:03:320:03:34

We were just chatting about Best Day, and something we found

0:03:410:03:44

interesting about it was that it's in a major key.

0:03:440:03:47

So, we thought we'd talk to you about major scales

0:03:470:03:49

and what they're all about.

0:03:490:03:51

So, I mean, I don't really know that much about piano.

0:03:510:03:53

-What's, like, the minor and the major scales and stuff?

-OK. Well,

0:03:530:03:57

if I were to play this, tell me how you feel.

0:03:570:03:59

-PIANO PLAYS

-Kind of happy, yeah.

-OK, and then,

0:03:590:04:02

like this... PIANO PLAYS

0:04:020:04:03

That's a lot more sad.

0:04:030:04:04

So, as you guys know, Best Day is a really happy and upbeat song.

0:04:040:04:08

So, it's actually played in a key called G major.

0:04:080:04:12

Major scales, what exactly are they?

0:04:120:04:13

Well, it's a pattern of notes in between an octave.

0:04:130:04:17

So, what is an octave?

0:04:170:04:18

Well, it's eight notes in between C and C,

0:04:180:04:21

or A and A, or whatever the key is in.

0:04:210:04:24

And so, the pattern of a major scale is always whole tone,

0:04:240:04:28

whole tone, semi-tone,

0:04:280:04:29

whole tone, whole tone,

0:04:290:04:31

whole tone, semi-tone.

0:04:310:04:32

Now I can show you how to actually play Best Day.

0:04:320:04:35

So, it would start with C, and then go to a chord called A minor.

0:04:350:04:40

Which is still in the key of C major, even though it's minor.

0:04:400:04:43

And then G.

0:04:430:04:44

-So, do you want to sing with me?

-Yeah, sure.

0:04:440:04:47

# Hey

0:04:470:04:50

# Take a break

0:04:500:04:52

# You're so caught up, you're going to trip until your downfall

0:04:530:04:57

# Uh-oh

0:04:570:05:00

# Hey

0:05:000:05:02

# Come out to play

0:05:020:05:05

# You worry so much about making it, you're missing it all

0:05:050:05:09

# Uh-oh. #

0:05:090:05:11

So, now that you guys know how to play it,

0:05:110:05:13

you can jam out to the song at home.

0:05:130:05:15

So, I hope you had fun with this lesson

0:05:150:05:17

and I hope you learn something.
