Notes: D-1, E-2, F-3, G-4, A-5, A#-6, C-7, D-8
Since it is a ‘D’ minor scale obviously ‘D’ will be first note, how to find the remaining notes ?
The simple formula which is used for any natural minor scale:
Tone-Semi tone-Tone-Tone-Semi tone-Tone-Tone (T-S-T-T-S-T-T)
What do you mean by Tones and Semi tones?
Tone (whole step) – If there is a one key between two notes, then the distance between those two notes is Tone or Whole step.
Eg: from D to E is a Tone or Whole step
Semi tone (half step) – If there are no keys between two notes, then the distance between those two notes is Semi tone or Half step
Eg: from A to A# is a Semi tone or Half step (Immediate keys)
