when cgetting the 3rd's, 5th's 7th's, etc...... on a D note, you would go D(1st), E (2nd), F#(3rd), G#(4th), A#(5th), C(6th) D(7th) etc... Yes??

and how about for G#. would it be G#(1st), A#(2nd), D(3rd) etc. For D#, D#(1st), F(2nd), G(3rd), A(4th), B(5th), C#(6th), Eb(7th)... Is this correct?

You might want to include a few more real words in that. It depends on what scale you are using.

Depends on the key you're in. If it's C major (CDEFGAB), the 3rd and 5th of D are F and A. In A major (A#BC#DEF#G#), they're F# and A. In Eb major (EbFGAbBbCD), they're F and Ab.
im just talking about single notes(A, B#, C....) Can't you get the 3rd's, etc by one note?

Technically yes, but intervals are always determined by the key. If the key is minor, I can't just turn around and say "screw you, I'm using a major third instead of a minor." It just doesn't work that way.

That's A major. A B C# D E F# G# A
If you build a triad from G#, you get G#, B, D. Add the seventh (F#), and you got yourself a half diminished chord
there are major and minors of every interval except for fourths and fifths.

1 Half step = minor second
2 half steps = major second
3 half steps = minor third
4 half steps = major third
5 half steps = perfect fourth
6 half steps = agumented fourth/diminished fifth
7 half steps = perfect fifth
8 half steps = minor sixth
9 half steps = major sixth
10 half steps= minor seventh
11 half steps= major seventh
12 half steps= octave

no it's not. He's got G, G#, and A. That isn't A major.
