  1. Construct a C major chord using the formula of the major chord (root, major third, perfect fifth). Identify the root note and determine the notes that make up the major third and perfect fifth.
  2. Identify the difference between the notes C# and Db. Determine the relationship between these two notes and explain when to use each of them in a musical context.
  3. Analyze the notes in a D minor chord. Identify the root note, minor third, and perfect fifth that make up this chord. Explain the difference between a major chord and a minor chord.
  4. Memorize the notes on the 6th string (low E string) of the guitar. Start with the open string and work your way up to the 12th fret. Test yourself by naming the notes randomly along the 6th string.
  5. Determine the interval between the notes C and G on the guitar. Calculate the number of frets and strings between these two notes and identify the interval by its name (e.g., perfect fifth).
  6. Define and explain the terms "note," "chord," "scale," and "mode" in the context of music theory. Provide examples of each term and describe their significance in understanding guitar playing.
  7. Create a major scale starting from the note G. Write down the sequence of notes that make up the G major scale, and play it on the guitar. Practice playing the scale ascending and descending.
  8. Analyze the chords in a common chord progression, such as C - G - Am - F. Identify the quality (major or minor) of each chord and explain how the progression follows the principles of music theory.
  9. Identify the notes that make up an A7 chord. Determine the root note, major third, perfect fifth, and minor seventh that form this dominant 7th chord. Explain the role and characteristics of a dominant 7th chord.
  10. Compare and contrast the concepts of a scale and a mode in music theory. Provide examples of both scales and modes on the guitar and explain how they differ in their structure and usage.
