In this lesson we will learn about the fundamental building block of tonal music: the major scale.

In this case we will use the F major scale. Because it is a major scale it has the same formula as the C major. But because it starts on the note F instead of the note C, it was it's own unique system of white & black keys.

Remember, every major scale has the same forumla which is a series of notes with specific intervals in between them. The intervals are either whole steps (WS) or half steps (HS):

1 - WS - 2 - WS - 3 - HS - 4 - WS - 5 - WS - 6 - WS - 7 - HS - 1

Notice that all intervals are whole steps (WS) except between notes 3 - 4 & 7 - 1, which are half steps (HS).
