Major and Minor Scales

February 13, 2010

So some people don’t really know about major and minor scales, as a musician, these are very important to know. They can help you figure out what notes go well with something your playing and are also good starting points when writing songs.

Major Scale

The major scale is a happy sounding scale, it’s probably the most commonly used type of scale and is popular in pop or mainstream songs. The main reason it sounds happy is because of the major 3rd and major 6th. Usually the notes in any scale are quite similar and have a few that make it major, minor etc.
So let’s look at the major scale in C, always a good starting place as it has no sharps or flats. The notes for this would be C D E F G A B C. C is the root, D 2nd, E M3rd, F P4th, G P5th, A M6th, B 7th and C POctave.
To play it, it would be something like this:
G ———–2-4-5—-
D —–2-3-5———-
A -3-5—————-
E ———————

Minor Scale

The minor scale is the sadder type of scale, mainly because of the 3b, 6b and 7b. Those 3 notes are enough to make it sound sad. Let’s look at it in C. The notes would be C D Eb F G Ab B C. C is the root, D 2nd, Eb m3rd, F P4th, G P5th, Ab m6th, B 7th and C POctave. Notice that the 4th, 5th and Octave are the same as in the major scale. Those notes don’t change and are called Perfect intervals. When you play the minor scale it would look something like this:
G ————-3-5—-
D ——-3-5-6——–
A -3-5-6————–
E ——————–

So that concludes a post on major and minor scales, hope someone finds this useful!
