I know the A family chord consists of A,D,E,
D family has D, Em,G A
G faimly is G, Am, C, D, and Em
I forgot what the C family chords were.
I got those from a guitar book.


So what about B, F, E family chords?

If you mean family... you mean chords that sounds nice together then I can help you. C is also known as Am. If you were playing degrees of Cmajor chords you could solo over it with a Am pentatonic. Anyways, the family consists of: C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am, Bdim, C.

Think of the root note (which in this case happens to be "C") as I. It follows a pattern for all keys.

I= Major
II= Minor
III= Minor
IV= Major
V=Major
VI=Minor
VII=Diminished

So this goes for any note. Let's say we want to figure out what is in the "Key of D/Bm". So we know are root note is D so,

I= Dmajor

So, what comes after D in the scale? "E".

II= Eminor

...and after E? "F#".

III= Fminor

and so on....

IV=Gmajor

V=Aminor

VI=Bminor

VII=C#Diminished


So in theory if you play those chords together (exception to diminished chord) you should be golden. Unless I made a mistake, which there is great possibility.


And let's say you don't know what sharps or flats are in a scale all you have to know is "Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle" If you are looking for what notes are in a "G" scale go down a half step to A#. So now you know you have F, C, G, D, and A as sharps.

As with flats, you go backwards "Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles Father". If you want to know what's in a Db scale you simply just flatten a D scale half a step. D, Em, F#m, G, A, Bm, C#dim, D become Db, Ebm, Fm, Gb, Ab, Bbm Cdim.


Does any of what I say make sense? To me it does, to many-- maybe not. I tried my best to put this from my brain into written form. If it helps I'm glad I could help.

Yes, you made a mistake:

D major
E minor
F# minor
G major
A major
B minor
C# diminished.

And diminished chord isn't exception. Use it right and it will sound good.

That makes sense, however saying "C is also known as A minor" doesn't.

No you couldn't. You could use the "A min pentatonic box shape", but you would be using C major pentatonic.

Loads of misinformation in that post. Here's something else I found to sound off-kilter:

If you are looking for what notes are in a "G" scale go down a half step to A#. So now you know you have F, C, G, D, and A as sharps.


What? If you're talking about the G major scale, then you're way off. It only has F#. And I don't know why you would talk about A#, since that would require 4 sharps and 3 double-sharps, and key signatures don't accept double-sharps (I believe - someone correct me if that's wrong)
Strat / SH-201 -> DOD Mixer -> ZVex Mastotron -> Fulltone Clyde -> BYOC OD II -> Ibanez FLL -> VS Chorus -> DOD FX 96 -> Boss DD-6 -> MXR 10-Band EQ -> Boss RC-2 -> Stereo Mixer -> Alesis PicoVerb -> Peavey Delta Blues 210/Yamaha Fifty112

Thanks for your valuable input

Your input is actually less valuable, considering so much of it's wrong. At least I told the truth, so get your own information straight before you try making a remark like that.
