Writing Major 3rds

In this lesson, you will see the notes of a Major 3rd lit up on your instrument and you will write them in music notation.

As always, it is important to choose the correct spelling.

The first spelling is correct because E to G# is a third.

The second spelling is incorrect because E to Ab is a fourth.

Here, the first spelling is correct because Ab to C is a third.

The second spelling is incorrect because G# to C is a fourth.

Now apply what you have learned.
