Major Scale Pattern

We learned a C major scale and now it’s time to break that C major scale down into pieces.  If we look we see that between C and D we skip a fret.


Any time we skip a fret, it’s called a whole step. Between B and C we don’t skip any frets and that’s called a half step.

So we break down our C major scale, we see that we have a whole step, a whole step, then a half step, then a whole step, a whole step a whole step and finally a half step.

So C to D is a whole step, D to E is a whole step, E to F is a half step, F to G is a whole step, G to A is a whole step, A to B is a whole step and B to C is a half step.
