The runs you have come up with don't start and end with C so they couldn't really be called C major scales, but, you've got the notes right.

Looks like you're doing it right. Good job. Can you do it starting on different notes as well?

Nope. Where do the notes want to resolve? That's what key you're in regardless if it starts and ends on that note or not.

I never said he wasn't in the key of C, he is. I simply said they're not, strictly speaking, C major scales.
