Test Your Knowledge

What I hope you're all doing from time to time is testing your knowledge. The best way to know music is to keep it fresh in your mind. This can be theory, or it can be practical, or even both!

I've decided to give you all a little test, and see what you're capable of. This should also give you an idea of the kind of things you should be testing yourself on, too.

Personal Message me on your answers, and I'll let you know if you're right or still need to work on some things.


Theory (no notation questions)



What's the fourth Mode in the Major scale?

What's the sixth position in the G Mixolydian Mode? (Answer requires the note and name of mode)

How many Sharps and/or Flats are in the Key of B?

How many Sharps and/or Flats are in the Key of A♭?

What notes are in the Key of E? (State if they're major or minor)

F# is the fifth note is what Key?


Practical



Play G major scale, stop on the third note, what mode and note is this?

A "m7b5" chord works best with which mode?

Play on the 7th fret, and on the A string; what note is this?

What's the 5th note and mode in the C Major scale?

What chords could be used in a II, V, I progression in the key of G Major?



This is an idea of some questions you should be asking yourself.

Make sure what you know becomes second memory!

If you keep forgetting certain things; test yourself on it!

Hey thanks for trying the test. Some of the answers weren't right but you did an awesome job.

3. There are five sharps and one flat in B Major.
B, C#m, D#m, Eb, F#, G#m, A#dim.

4. There are four flats in Ab.
Ab, Bbm, Cm, Db, Eb, Fm, Gdim.

The easiest way I can remember sharps and flats is a typical saying which I've found is the fastest way to remember. It's the first picture in my Major Scale and Modes within lesson. :)

You mean there are just five sharps in Bmajor right Jazz.
If you want to look at them like flats then there are 7 flats.

Sorry about that, that's my mistake. It E natural, not Eb. Thanks for pointing this out, bodom.

Just as a side, a 7b5 would be a major chord so locrian actually wouldn't work. There are several others that would however, none in the major scale.
Super locrian could work.

Never, EVER combine flats and sharps in the same key!!

When you go forward in the circle of 5th, you will always get one more sharp. When you go forward in 4ths, you will always get one more flat.

They do not combine, ever!!!

Actually they do, just not in the standard major keys.

It would be a minor 7b5 to work with the Locrian. Sorry, I was supposed to put that in the test.

JazzMaverick, maybe leave a site for people to improve their theory after they take the test? I don't believe it covers modes, but you can download it and contains mini applications to test intervals, keys, notes and triads.
MusicTheory.Net

www.musictheory.net is such a helpful site, I agree. But the site has already been recommended by me and other members a number of times to each of them. I felt there was no need to say it again.

This site covers modes quite nicely. I've yet to find another site which covers modes with an easy to use example maker.

i guess, my guitar teacher would always tell me, if I were writting something, if it sounds good, just go with it. I guess theory is more like learning guidelines, even mozart and beethoven and all those guys broke the rules. although it's good to learn theory, makes things easier.

It's like what I always say; learn the rules, then break them.

Yeah, there are four flats in the key of Ab. But you noticed it.

Hope this helps give you an idea of what you can test yourself on.
