Don't you understand the importance of correct spelling and grammar? It's the online symbol of maturity. And you as sure as hell don't have that.

ok basic theory.

A whole step is two half steps Example: C to D
A half step from one note to the next with no gaps. Example: C to C# This also includes E to F (notice there is no key inbetween these two on a piano or on fretboard of a guitar, this is because it is one "step" to the next note.)

So with the "Whole, Whole, Half, Whole, Whole, Whole, Half."

It goes C - D - E - F - G - A - B - C

And that's the major scale.

If u wanted to get C Minor

u can flatten the 3rd and the 6th

so you would get

C - D - Eb - F - G - Ab - B - C


Also with the W, W, H, W, W, W, H

You may also find it written as

Tone, Tone, Semi-tone, Tone, Tone, Tone, Semi-tone, because a tone is a whole step and a semi-tone is a half step. that will give u any major scale.
Just start on the note u want.

Example : Gmajor G - A - B - C - D - E - F# - G

G to A is a tone or a whole step,
A to B is a " "
B to C is a Semi-tone or a half step (as there is no gap between them)
C to D is a
D to E is a
E to F# is a tone
F# to G is a semi tone leading us back to the note we began on

Hope i made it as easy to understand as possible

Jarrad100, you flat the seventh degree for a minor scale as well. It's 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 b7, so your scale would be C D Eb F G Ab Bb.

C D Eb F G Ab B is C harmonic minor.
