Lesson #075, Building Basic Scales and Chords II
Let me say first that in the video W stands for a whole STEP. H stands for a half STEP.
I mis-spoke in the intro saying whole "note" and half "note".
The Formula for a Major Scale is this.......R W W H W W W H
We can make the Root any of the twelve notes we would like. If we wanted to construct an F# Major scale our root would be F#. If we wanted to construct an E Major scale our root would be E. And so on with the rest of the twelve notes.
A half step is equal to one fret.
A whole step is equal to two frets.
do re mi fa so la ti do...........we are going to Rock with this Scale.
