Notes: E-1, F#-2, G#-3, A-4, B-5, C#-6, D#-7, E-8
Since it is a ‘E’ major scale obviously ‘E’ 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 E to F# 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 G# to A the interval is “zero” (Immediate keys)
