The Base Of The Pyramid
It's amazing when you think of how far you can stretch rudimentary knowledge.
For example, when you learn the major scale, you are learning a countless number of songs that use only those 8 notes. A great song that demonstrates this is the Christmas classic "Joy To The World".
The beginning is the major scale backwards. Followed by a walk back up the scale.
Yet another popular song, "Twinkle Twinkle" is found on the major scale, and is often the first song learn by many students, and when you learn "Twinkle Twinkle"you are also learning "The ABCs" song too.
So you see, with just a small understanding of one scale, you can be off and running with songs.
But it goes a little further than that too. When you have the one fundamental locked in, it's only then that you can truly modify it.
It's a lot like putting new tyres on a car; first you must have the car firmly in your ownership ;)
