This tutorial will explain more advanced concepts about Scales.
In the previous tutorial, we learned that a Major Scale is made of a pattern of Whole Steps and Half Steps in the order Whole, Whole, Half, Whole, Whole, Whole Half.
We also saw how the C Major Scale us built on this pattern.
If we were to start on a different note, such as G, but keep the same pattern of Whole Steps and Half steps, we would have a G Major Scale.
However, naturally the interval from E to F is only a half step.
Therefore we replace F with F#, forcing the interval to become a Whole Step.
Again, if we keep the pattern Whole, Whole, Half, Whole, Whole, Whole, Half, we will end up with a Bb major scale.
