Music’s Code: The Major Scale Formula

By Darren DeFranco

Hey everyone,

One thing that we at GBU stress immensely is music theory because it helps us to understand how music works. This will turn us into great musicians who will be able to manipulate music and really make it do whatever you want. This is very powerful stuff, so if you can get a good grasp of music theory there’s really nothing you can’t do.

This is often an intimidating topic for a lot of players so please, ask away if you’re confused about anything. We want you guys to get this and we’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen!


Now that you guys understand how scales are put together, here’s a few scales for you to figure out:

D major

A major

E major

F major

Bb major


key of D = D E F# G A B C#

key of A = A B C# D E F# G#

key of E major = E F# G# A B C# D# E

key of F major = F G A Bb C D E

key of Bb = Bb C D Eb F G A
