Push can be intimidating at first, but it’s laid out in such a way that once you start to understand different shapes and patterns, you can move around pretty fluidly. One way I find that helps to get a good grasp on notes and chords is by assigning numbers to the notes.
This isn’t a new concept, but I find it works very well on Push. Most of your scales are going to have notes 1 through 7, and you can do a lot with these notes in terms of putting together chords. Want to turn a triad into a seventh chord? Add the note with the number 7, same for 9, etc.
Even if you don’t know all of the notes in the key or scale you’re working on, the great thing about Push is once you understand a certain layout or pattern you can apply it to all the scales and keys. So 1 through 7 for C is the same as 1 through 7 for G, Major, Minor, it doesn’t matter.
