Notes: E-1, F#-2, G-3, A-4, B-5, C-6, D-7, E-8
Since it is a ‘E’ minor scale obviously ‘E’ 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 C to D 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 C to C# is a Semi tone or Half step (Immediate keys)
