Major Scale:

Remember this rhyme:


Lets use an example!

C Major = C D E F G A B C
D Major = D E F# G A B C# D

Both go in the order of Tone-Tone-Semitone-Tone-Tone-Tone-Semitone.

(Remember to start off on C THEN start the rhyme. As you can see there's seven words, not eight).

Minor Scale:

Every major scale comes with a paired minor scales, called the Relative Minor of whatever key your in. E.g: "Relative minor of C Major"

To find the relative minor, find the 6th note of the Major. For Example, The 6th note of D Major is B. From there just do the Tone Tone Semitone rhyme, starting on B and ending on B to find B Minor.

D Major:

D E F# G A B C# D E F# G A B C# D E F# G A B C# D

B Minor:

B C# D E F# G A B.

No Key Scale:

Although rarely used, the No Key Scale can create some EPIC songs, as long as you don't do what a lot of people do and spam every note 50,000 times. The No Key Scale is self-explanatory, there's no Key. You can play any note you want. it doesn't matter if they're black or white. 

I was going to talk about triads and inversions and all sorts. But I closed the web page by accident and because the website doesn't support auto drafting yet, I had to restart, As I weren't thinking of saving a draft at the time, and I didn't even know where the button was at the time. 

Please add Auto-Drafting, thanks.
