wow excellent forum .. my first blog, and I don't know what to write hehe ... well the truth is that the cuatro and I think that any other instrument has intimidated me forever, but now I decide, after my retirement, to put my boots on and face it (rather facing me). books help to have a basic knowledge, but it is not when you enter a site called cuatro .com that I started to learn about the instrument I really liked how one interacts with that site. he really did it !!!! but it got me confused when it came to the minor scales. According to what I understood in that web site that there are three types of minor scales natural, melodic and harmonic. Well, I started in the natural. He said that to find the C minor scale you had to use the relative minor using the sixth degree of the C major scale. then it is DO, RE, MI, FA SOL, LA, SI,. It came out that LA is the sixth, but when I started to play a aguinaldo In C minor, I improvised with its relative minor which is LA and it didn't sound good. so I decided to find help with Maribel Delgado on Facebook and my big brother based in Guam ABNER "CANO" COLLAZO. Maybe I don't explain myself well and ignorant of how to speak musically so that the question is understood, but note that if I don't educate myself in musical terms the communication between teacher and student can contradict misinterpretation and semantics or my interpretation can lead me to different ways of seeing the teaching that my teacher wants to teach with great interest, so I'm going to take it easy, breathe deeply with peace and let my knowledge flow of these two extraordinary beings, to see if I can enjoy the music that saw me grow up.
