Let’s get to today’s lesson…

I’ve already taught you the basics. Let’s just quickly finish up the major scales so that we can learn the chords tomorrow!

If you need a reminder on forming scales, pull out yesterday’s e-mail lesson…

Here are the remaining major scales to learn:

B Major

3) 1 whole step up = ______
4) 1 half step up = _____
5) 1 whole step up = ______
6) 1 whole step up = ______
7) 1 whole step up = ______
8) 1 half step up = ______

Bb major:

2) 1 whole step up = ______
3) 1 whole step up = ______
4) 1 half step up = _____
5) 1 whole step up = ______
6) 1 whole step up = ______
7) 1 whole step up = ______
8) 1 half step up = ______

Now that you have completed the worksheet above, check your major scale answers with the answers below:

B Major

B – C# – D# – E – F# – G# – A# – B

Db Major

Db – Eb – F – Gb – Ab – Bb – C – Db

Eb Major

Eb – F – G – Ab – Bb – C – D – Eb

F# Major

F# – G# – A# – B – C# – D# – F (but technically “E#”) – F#

Note: With the F# major scale, technically the “F” would be referred to as “E#” (even though “E” does not have a black key in front of it). But since we are not reading music, I will keep it simple.

Ab Major

Ab – Bb – C – Db – Eb – F – G – Ab

Bb Major

Bb – C – D – Eb – F – G – A – Bb

Congratulations on learning all 12 major scales. Join me tomorrow to learn the major chords!

Good job!
