The major scale is one of the most fundamental and versatile musical scales. It consists of seven notes and follows a specific pattern of whole steps (W) and half steps (H) between the notes. In the context of the guitar, the major scale is essential for understanding music theory, constructing chords, and creating melodies. The formula for the major scale in terms of intervals is: Root (1) – Whole (W) – Whole (W) – Half (H) – Whole (W) – Whole (W) – Whole (W) – Half (H) On the guitar, the major scale can be played in various positions and across multiple strings.
