Note Relation Music Theory (part 3)

Updated: Feb 11

In the music system our notes are laid out as:

A B C D E F G A etc


If you look at a piano their are white keys which are the ABC's and series of 2 black keys and 3 black keys...they are the sharps # and flats b (more on this later).


There is a black keys between all the white keys except between B and C and between E and F.


So:

A to B is a whole step because they are 2 notes/keys apart and on the guitar they are 2 frets apart. There is a black key between them.

B to C is a half step because they are only 1 note/key apart and on the guitar they are next to one another. There is no black key between them.


C to D is a whole step because they are 2 notes/keys apart and on the guitar they are 2 frets apart. There is a black key between them.


D to E is a whole step because they are 2 notes/keys apart and on the guitar they are 2 frets apart. There is a black key between them.

E to F is a half step because they are only 1 note/key apart and on the guitar they are next to one another. There is no black key between them.


F to G is a whole step because they are 2 notes/keys apart and on the guitar they are 2 frets apart. There is a black key between them.


G to A is a whole step because they are 2 notes/keys apart and on the guitar they are 2 frets apart. There is a black key between them.
