After reading a couple of Osama_Spears posts, I realize that he has a hard time understanding the concept of scales. This made me think that maybe there are others here as who dont get it either. So I am simply going to write out the scales for him/them. I am putting them in the order of the circle of 5ths as it was taught to me. This will hopefully help teach you that as well. I probably shouldve looked at this before posting but I forgot about it and am too tired to go back and redo it so if its wrong I apologize. Click here for more info on the Circle of 5ths. We'll start with the major scales first. Then imediatly underneath it will be its natural minor (aka aeolian mode) This way it'll be easier for you to analize why/what makes it the minor. There are two other variations of the minor scale. They are the harmonic and melodic minor. But we'll get into those once you grasp these. 1.C C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C 2.G G-A-B-C-D-E-F-#G G-A-Bb-C-D-Eb-F-G 3.D D-E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D D-E-F-G-A Bb-C-D 4.A A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G#-A A B C D E F G A 5.E E-F#-G#-A-B-C#-D#-E E-F#-G-A-B-C-D-E 6.B B-C#-D#-E-F#-G#-A#-B B-C#-D-E-F#-G-A-B 7.F# F#-G#-A#-B-C#-D#-F-F# F#-G#-A-B-C#-D-E-F# 8.F F-G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F F G Ab Bb C Db Eb F 9.Bb Bb-C-D-Eb-F-G-A-Bb Bb-C-Db-Eb-F-Gb-Ab-Bb 10.Eb Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C-D-Eb Eb-F-Gb-Ab-Bb-Cb-Db-Eb 11.Ab Ab-Bb-C-Db-Eb-F-G-Ab Ab-Bb-Cb-Db-Eb-Fb-Gb-Ab 12.C# C#-D#-E#-F#-G#-A#-B#-C# C#-D#-E-F#-G#-A-B-C# If you notice each of these scales consists of 8 notes. The 8 notes in each scale are numbered 1-8 in numerical order. These numbers are called intervals. We'll use C as our example because 1. Every other scale is built off it. 2. It contains no sharps or flats. (accidentals) C=1 D=2 E=3 F=4 G=5 A=6 B=7 C=8 (the 1 & 8 play a duel role, it is the root or 1 & the octave or 8) This applies to every key and to both major and minor scales. In this case of C major the 3, 6, & 7 are major. Now, if you look at the scales natural minor you'll notice that the 3, 6, and 7 are one half step (1 fret) lower. Making them a a natural minor.

Osama, even if you dont understand what Im talking about with the major and minor stuff, All the notes are there for you, so theres no reason you shouldnt be able to learn the scales now. Tke the time to write them down and then practice them. There will be a quiz on them in the near future to see if you've been trying to learn them.
