Major 7ths Writing by Name

In this lesson, you will write Major 7ths in music notation, but this time without the aid of an instrument.

The easiest way to write a Major 7th is to find the octave, then go down a half step.

Always make sure that you are spelling it as a Major 7th, and not a Diminished Octave.

A Diminished Octave should stick out like a sore thumb because the top and bottom note use the same letter.
