What is the Major Scale?


The major scale: chances are you’ve heard of it; chances are you’ve either sung it in school or in a choir or played it on an instrument. But what is it exactly? In this video I’m going to explain the major scale and show you a couple of different ways you can play it on the guitar.


Even if you have some idea of what the major scale is but aren’t sure you could explain it to someone else, then this is the video you’ll want to watch.

Major Scale Formula:

W=whole step

H=half step
