Ok...so pretty much the major scale is just...idk how to describe it, so let me give an example...F major would be (on E string) 1,3,5,6,8,10,12,13....would that be right? I took my first guitar lesson yesterday and I'm just...checking out his lesson. If anyone wants to help, I'd greatly appreciate. Thanks.

W W H W W W H

W = whole step / tone / fret 3 to 5 would be a whole step
H= half step / semi-tone / fret 3 to 4 would be a half step

starting on ANY note, *lets say G* and go up a WHOLE step to A, then a whole step to B, then a HALF step to C, then a WHOLE step to D and so on

I understand that Kyle_2k, but my teacher said that with the major scale, the 3rd and 4th are a half step as well as the 7th and 8th.

Major - 1 3 5 7 (where C is 1, 3 is E (because E is the 3rd note of a major scale)

now a "formula" (as i call them) for a Minor scale is

Minor - 1 b3 5 7

so 1 - C , b3 would be Eb!!!! cuz u take the 3rd note of the scale u are using, and flatten it.) 5 would be G and the 7 is B


so incase that was hard

Major (in key of C)

1 3 5 7
C E G B

Minor (in key of C)

1 b3 5 7
C Eb G B


so henceforth if u were to play a C, E, G, and B together, it would be a C MAJOR CHORD

if u wher to play the (minor) C Eb G and B together, it would be respectively, a C MINOR CHORD


the ONLY difference between major and minor is the 3rd note of the scale (it gets flattened)


so am i still right??? wholy ive suprised myself hahaha

Using the 1 3 5 7 formula, those chords would be Maj7th chords. C E G B would be a Cmaj7 chord. The formula for a m7 chord would be 1 b3 5 b7. A C7 chord (Dominant 7th) would be written 1 3 5 b7. You should take the time the differentiate between the three.

And no - the difference between the major and minor scales is three notes. But generally, the 3rd defines the tonality of the scale.

Major scale - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7.
Minor scale - 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 b7.

Major 7th - 1 3 5 7 - Yes.
Major triad - 1 3 5 - Yes.

Also, don't mistake maj7 chords for dom7 chords and vice versa.
Maj7 : 1 3 5 7
Dom7 : 1 3 5 b7
