How Does it Work?

1.  Position the insert to line up a key signature or root note in Slot# 1


2.  The notes that line up with the Number Formula are the Major Scale notes for that key. Example: The notes in the key of "C" are C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C.  C is 1, D is 2, E is 3, and so on.  Seeing how keys and major scales are formed will allow you to learn your instrument faster!


3.  The rows and columns will align the other names a note can have.  Intervals, extensions, and technical names of any key will line up instantly.  Converting note names into numbers makes learning other scales and chords easy! 


(Insert shows musical terms, optional key signatures, and symbol legend.)


Chord Builder
The Music Decoder takes the difficult and makes it easy by showing you WHY a chord is a chord and WHY a scale is a scale. Why memorize multiplication tables when you can learn how to multiply? It's the same with music. Slide the insert to the desired root note, find the formula of the desired chord, and the Music Decoder will show you what notes are required.

Scale Builder

Learning scales doesn't have to be hard. When you compare the scales formulas, you’ll find the scales with elaborate names are just an alteration of the Major scale, just no one typically teaches it this way. By identifying the note names of a particular scale, you can get instant results and apply them to soloing.

The inside slider also contains valuable information such as musical definitions, optional key signatures, and music theory basics. No matter what level of learning, or if you've never taken lesson one, the Music Decoder will help put it all together.
