4.  The G Major Scale

Remember you can find any Major Scale easily using   

The Formula   -    T    2    2    1    2    2    2    1

Another example:- finding the notes of the G Major Scale


First stand over the note of G. This is called the Tonic (T)

G is your 1st note. Your starting note

Now take 2 steps right. 1st step G#   to   2nd step A (A is your 2nd note)

Now take 2 steps right. 1st step A#   to   2nd step B (B is your 3rd note) etc…

Just continue following the pattern you memorized before

T    2    2    1    2    2    2    1

Study the diagram below

The notes of the G Major Scale are -  

  I     II   III   IV   V  VI  VII                        I   (Octave)

G - A - B - C - D - E - F# - and back to G  again  

Notice that the G Major Scale has One Black Note the

Note of F sharp (G flat)  F#/Gb.
