This may appear to be a stupid question to some of you , but nether the less it is really confusing me and if you could explain it to me i think it would explain alot

i want to know who, how , and why a scale is ? why (for example ) is a C major scale where it is on the fret board and why call it c major scale. who said this is that , and how did they work it out where the rest of it was ?

or is it simply just there because X said so and it sounds cool ?
the root note (the first note in the scale) is weirdly enough a C note. Thus the C scale. the major part, is because the notes in this scale are notes that fit with songs in the key of C major. As apposed to notes in a C minor scale fit with songs in the key of C minor.

A "clean" major scale always has this:

C D E F G A B C (tones)
1 1 ½ 1 1 1 ½ (steps on fretboard)

you can start on the tone you want to, but always use the whole and half steps in this order to get the major scale.
