## Scale Major and Minor

SCALE- IS A ASCENDING OR A DESCENDING SCALE WHICH HAS ITS OWN PATTERN

MAJOR:

W-W-1/2-W-W-W-1/2

MAJOR:

W-W-1/2-W-W-W-1/2

## EXAMPLE

Using this scale, you have to remember that it has to be ALWAYS ascending. So first step is assemble the notes in an ascending way. Afterward you can easily rearrange it using flats and sharps. In C Major there is no sharps or flats.

Since it is major follow the pattern: W-W-1/2-W-W-W-1/2So C - D is a whole, D - E is a whole, E - F is half since there is no black key in the middle of it. F - G si a whole, G - A is a whole, A - B is a whole, and B - C is a half.

Since it is major follow the pattern: W-W-1/2-W-W-W-1/2So C - D is a whole, D - E is a whole, E - F is half since there is no black key in the middle of it. F - G si a whole, G - A is a whole, A - B is a whole, and B - C is a half.

## EXAMPLES E MAJOR SCALE

Using this scale, you will start with the E key and end in the higher E key. So again write the notes in an ascending order. So using the pattern like the one up.

E - F is a half, so to make it a whole, add another half to it, so go the the next black key, which will add another 1/2 to it = 1 whole. So it is #F. Next is #G = 1 whole. Last, an A since moving the sharp to a non sharp is a half.

E - F is a half, so to make it a whole, add another half to it, so go the the next black key, which will add another 1/2 to it = 1 whole. So it is #F. Next is #G = 1 whole. Last, an A since moving the sharp to a non sharp is a half.
