CONSTRUCTION OF F AND G MAJOR SCALE
DEFINITION OF SCALE: Scale is a group of notes in succession. Scale is also a set of any keys ordered by a particular frequency or pitch.The two types of scale include major and minor scale. There are fifteen major scales. The types of minor scale include melodic minor scale and harmonic minor scale.
In all major scales, semitones occur between the 3rd and 4th, 7th and 8th degrees. Accidentals must be introduced just before the note to preserve the correct order of tones and semitones in all major and minor scale.
F MAJOR SCALE
F major is a flat key in the major scale that has one flattened key as it key signature and accidental. The flattened key in F major is B.
G MAJOR SCALE: Construction of the scale of G major in the treble clef starting from the mediant using accidental. The sharpened key in the scale of G major is C.
The sharp sign introduced just before the note (semibreve) raises the pitch of the note in C by a semitone. The sharp introduced just before the note in C is called accidental.
