The G Major Scale:
The G Major Scale has 1 sharp and zero flats. This scale establishes the key of G Major, which is the second major key in music as shown in the Circle of Fifths.
- Memorize the degrees that make up the G Major Scale.
- Know how to play the G Major Scale in 1st Position.
- Be able to associate the tones of the G Major Scale with the G Major chord.
Major scales move in the order of sharps. In other words, the C major scale has zero sharps, G has one sharp, and so on.
The next scale will have two sharps and one of them will be an F#. The new sharp will come in at the 7th degree of the scale. Can you figure out what it will be?
(Hint: Use the major scale pattern to find out.)
