I'm an intermediate guitar player and I'm trying to improve my music theory. When I'm sweep picking I play a pattern because it sounds right to me. Now that I'm learning how music theory works, I'm interested in finding out why that pattern sounds right. Here is an example;
Dm - F - Gm - B♭ - Cm - E♭ - Fm - A♭
I think it works for all notes as long as the pattern is the same which is;
Minor - 3 half steps higher Major - 2 half steps higher Minor
The starting point does not matter either. Could start from major etc
I'm sure this is a novice question and I'm missing technical terms but I'm trying to learn by myself.
