KEY NOTES (SHARPS)

Introduction: Major keys and their relative minor keys (notes in red box) listed according to the number of sharps. Notice that the relative minor key (scale) always begins at the 6th note of the major scale, or 3 notes back from the octave of the same major scale. The formula for the major scale is: 2-1/2, 3-1/2 (i.e., 2 whole steps followed by 1 half step and 3 whole steps followed by 1 half step). The formula for the relative minor key is: 1-1/2, 2-1/2, 2 (i.e., 1 whole step followed by 1 half step, 2 whole steps followed by 1 half step, and 2 whole steps). Develop your ear by listening to these scales.
