1. ## any body Dmajor scale

Does any one know to play the D major scale.The octave.

2. here goes....

The D major scale (standard ...including the 1st and 2nd octaves)

e---------------------------------------------------5---7---9----10-------
B---------------------------------------5---7---8-----------------------
G--------------------------4---6---7------------------------------------
D------------4---5---7------------------------------------------------
A----5---7-------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE EASIER IF I TABBED IT INSTEAD OF GIVIN U THE NOTES.....

3. u can figure out any major scale using this formula.....

T T S T T T S

T - when we move ahead or backward by 1 note...(like G to A or E to F )

S - when we move ahead or backward by half a not...(like G to G# or D to D# )

4. u can figure out any major scale using this formula.....

T T S T T T S

T -represents a ' tone' - where we move ahead or backward by 1 note...(like G to A or E to F )

S - represents a 'semi-tone' - when we move ahead or backward by half a not...(like G to G# or D to D# )

5. ## Thanks

6. ## MINOR SCALES

even though no one asked for them i guess this shd be helpful to those who wanna play minor scales........

the formula for the standard minor scale is.......

T S T T S T T

7. Yep, a major scale is:

1 Root note
2 Full step from 1
3 Full step from 2
4 Half step from 3
5,6,7 Full step up from 4,5,6 resp
8 Half step from 7

Basically you would form minor scales by knowing relative minors of a particular major scale. When you play a major scale starting from the sixth note what you've played is a minor (natural minor). That is the "relative minor" of the major scale you were trying to play. So if you want to play A minor A is the sixth note in the scale of C - so play the C major scale from note number 6 - i.e. A - and you get Am...

Relative minor for D major scale is ... well thats homework for u

Enjoy.
