sorry for making another post but i wanted this to be a lot more organized. if i understand major scale theory correctly then this should be right. its supposed to be an F major scale.

E|-----------------------------------0-1------------
B|-----------------------------0-2------------------
G|---------------------0-2-3------------------------
D|-------------0-2-3--------------------------------
A|------0-1-3---------------------------------------
E|-1-3-----------------------------------------------

i heard that it is only supposed to be 8 notes is that true?
You got it right. But, you started the scale over in a new octave at the 3rd fret on the D string.

that 2 on the b string is supposed to be a 3. other that that its right.

and its 8 notes per octave. you did 2 octaves, so thus theres 16 notes.

ok bass man how come i only have 15 then?
An octave is the same note name but a different pitch. Like this:
``````
e|-----1-  F
B|-------
G|-------
D|---3---  F
A|-------
E|-1-----  F``````

These are all F notes, but different pitches.

Also, a 2 octave scale should have 15 notes, not 16. The last 7 notes are repeats of the previous 8.

ii think silent deftone just cleared it up for you, but let me take a stab anyway....

the first 8 notes are one octave, low F to high F (F, G, A, Bb, C, D, E, F).

then the next octave is those same notes in order just starting on the high F and going up to the next higher F.

So yes, technically there is 15. i said 16 because i counted that middle F (3rd fret on the d string) as both the 8th note of the first scale and the 1st note of the 2nd scale.

i strongly recommend a music theory class if your school has one. they can help you alot.
