Welcome to the third part in our guide to intervallic sequences. Playing through these interval sequences will improve your jazz technique and aural skills as well as making scale practice more interesting. So far we have covered the 3rd interval and also the 4th interval.
In this lesson we shall take a look at how you can practice playing the C major scale in intervals of a fifth. Let’s take a look at how the 5ths interval sequence would look in C major
C major in 5ths
C, G, D, A, E, B, F, C, G, D, A, E, B, F
The example below shows you the C major scale played in 5ths in both standard notation and tablature.
