# “A” Major Scale Positions – Piano Tutorials

Notes: A-1, B-2, C#-3, D-4, E-5, F#-6, G#-7, A-8

Since it is a ‘A’ major scale obviously ‘A’ 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 A to B 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 C# to D the interval is “zero” (Immediate keys)
