If we were to use all twelve pitches of Western music all the time, our music might sound a bit confused and overwhelming. That's because we tend to use pitches in smaller groups called scales.
The pitches of a scale tend to work well together and can be used to give our music a particular feel or character.
Most of the music we tend to hear is based on either a major or minor scale. In this lesson, we have a look at the major scale, what is sounds like and how we can build one for ourselves.
