Music Slide Rule
5a. Now you know how to find the notes of any Major Scale
using The Formula - T 2 2 1 2 2 2 1
To find the notes of any Major Scale for example in a music exam just
Write out the 12 notes of the Musical Alphabet on a piece of paper and use the Formula
T 2 2 1 2 2 2 1
The Example below is for the A Major Scale
You need to remember that B and C, E and F have no black notes between them
Study the diagram below
A. A#/Bb. B. C. C#/Db. D. D#/Eb. E. F. F#/Gb. G. G#/Ab. A.
The A Major Scale
Now we have easily found the notes of the A Major Scale
A. B. C#. D. E. F#. G#. A.
Note: Basically so as to not replicate the music note letters we use
C# instead of Db - F# intead of Gb -G# instead of Ab
So the notes of the A Major Scale look like this
A. B. C#. D. E. F#. G#. A. And not like this shown below
A. B. Db. D. E. Gb. Ab. A.
See the logic?
