Join Gayle Kowalchyk for an in-depth discussion in this video The G major scale, part of Piano Lessons: Teach Yourself to Play.
- Remember that the major scale…is made up of two tetrachords joined by a whole step.…Here is the G major scale.…There is one sharp, F sharp, in the G major scale.…A piece based on the G major scale is written…in the key of G major.…Since F is sharp in the scale…F will be sharp in the key as well.…An F sharp is indicated in the key signature.…
Notice in the G major scale…that you have two new notes in each staff.…In the treble staff you have F…which will be F sharp, and G.…In the base staff you have A, and G.…Let's play the G major scale with the right hand.…
