The whole steps are located between F/G, G/A, Bb/C, C/D, and D/E. The half steps are located between A/Bb, and E/F. You can use this pattern of whole steps and half steps to find the major scale on all 12 keys:
Root, WS, WS, HS, WS, WS, WS, HS
Playing F Major scale: F,G,A,Bb,C,D,E,F
F , (Root) G , (F to G = WS) A , (G to A = WS) Bb, (A to Bb = HS) C , (Bb to C = WS) D, (C to D = WS) E , (D to E = WS) F, (E to F = HS)
You'll learn how to play F Major with the right hand and left hand separately. Next, you'll practice to play F Major scale with both hands together. Watch demo on Synthesia.
1 = Thumb 2 = Index Finger 3 = Middle Finger 4 = Ring Finger 5 = Pinky
Right hand fingering: F,G,A,Bb,C,D,E,F 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4
Left hand fingering: F,G,A,Bb,C,D,E,F 5, 4, 3 ,2,1,3, 2,1
Major scales are used to create most of the popular songs you hear on the radio today as well as many pieces of classical music.
