Major Scales

You can easily determine the notes for any major scale by using the following formula:

Major Scale = Root + whole step + whole step + half step + whole step + whole step + whole step + half step

or

Major Scale = Root + 1 step + 1 step + 1/2 step + 1 step + 1 step + 1 step + 1/2 step
