SC01 The major scale

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

The major scale or the Ionian major scale (first of the 7 mode scales)

Well, the scale almost all western music is built on

Scale degrees/intervals, example in C:
C, tonic (1)
D, major second (2)
E, major third (3)
F, perfect fourth (4)
G, perfect fifth (5)
A, major sixth (6)
B, major seventh (7)

Scale formula:
Whole step – C to D
Whole step – D to E
Half step – E to F
Whole step – F to G
Whole step – G to A
Whole step – A to B
Half step – B to C

Hi Thomas

In the learning learning scales section the only one am able to download is the c major root position(A str.3rd fret), but none of the others why is that? or what do I need to do for downloading?

I love this series of vids!!…SWEET!
I use the acronym IDPLMALI… (sounds like “I’d pull Molly”)…to remember the rest of the major modes; and then the patterns just start going everywhere! hahaha!!
