Lawrence started playing the electric guitar because of his passion for rock music. Back in the day he played in a metal band, but now plays more for himself.


    Wrongly worded question! >> On what scale degree does the minor scale start?
    Sorry boys and girls but your second question is incorrectly presented. For the given answer in your test, it really SHOULD read something like >> On what degree of the major scale does it’s relative minor begin.

    Any minor scale starts on the first degree. ANY SCALE starts on the first degree! 🙂

    If you are going to set Music Theory quizzes – maybe you need someone to proof read your questions BEFORE you go public with them!

    Thanks … as a music teacher that was confusing … impossible to get that rIght with your wording .. my answer was correct for the wording you gave but not the answer you wanted !

    Me too. 9 out of 10. Didn’t understand the question. Every major and minor scale starts on the first degree, but the relative minor starts on the 6th degree of the major.

    One word missing:
    Corresponding (minor scale)

    All the above comments are right. Please correct.

    I call this a sweep of agreement. Confusing wording.

    I agree with the above, it’s too confusing! Personally I prefer using GuitarLlama (guitarllama.com) because they break everything down into easy to understand ways. Too many music theory resources are dry and overly complicated!
