Notes: D-1, E-2, F#-3, G-4, A-5, B-6, C#-7, D-8
Since it is a ‘D’ major scale obviously ‘D’ will be first note, how to find the remaining notes ?
The simple formula which is used for any major scale:
One- One- Zero- One-One- One-Zero (1-1-0-1-1-1-0)
What do you mean by Ones and Zeros ?
One’s (whole step) – If there is a one key between two notes, then the interval of those two notes is One.
Eg: from D to E the interval is “one key”
Zero’s (half step) – If there are no keys or zero keys between two notes, then the interval of those two notes is Zero
Eg: from F# to G the interval is “zero” (Immediate keys)
