F Major Scale Whole Steps and Half Steps

This scale is created the same way that any major scale is formed in Western Music.  Therefore the same sequence of whole steps and half steps occurs in all 12 major scales.

A half step is the shortest distance possible between two notes on the piano keyboard.  In addition, a whole step is comprised of 2 half steps.

So a major scale sequence in any key is:

WHOLE STEP, WHOLE STEP, HALF STEP, WHOLE STEP,

WHOLE STEP, WHOLE STEP,   HALF STEP

Using the above whole step/half step sequence recognize that the F Major Scale follows this exactly.

F to G is a WHOLE STEP.   From G to A is a WHOLE STEP.  A to B-flat is a HALF STEP.  Then from B-flat to C is a WHOLE STEP.

Next play C to D is as a WHOLE STEP.  D to E is a WHOLE STEP.  Finally, from E to F is a HALF STEP.
