Writing Major 2nds

Now you will see a Major 2nd lit up on your instrument and you will write in in music notation.

When deciding to whether to write something as sharps or flats, consider the degree, or number, of the interval.

When writing a Major 2nd, the degree should be a 2nd.

In the example below E to F# is correct because from E to F is a Second.

E to Gb is incorrect because from E to G is a Third.
