Learn the Major Scale first, it is what other scales are derived from.

In musical terms, a 'tone' or 'step' or whatever else it may be called, is going up or down 2 frets on the fretboard, a half-step, or semi-tone, is going up or down 1 fret.

Starting on any note you wish, the major scale goes:

Whole, Whole, Half, Whole, Whole, Whole, Half. (WWHWWWH)


So, if you started on an open A string you would be playing an A Major Scale, so if we took it from there it would be:


A|---0----------2-----------4-----------5-----------7-----------9-----------11-----------12



-----------W---------W-----------H----------W---------W----------W-----------H-------


As you can see, W (whole step) is an interval of 2 frets, H (half-step) is an interval of 1 fret.

BTW interval is just another word saying how far apart notes are on the fretboard.
