Major Scale

A scale in which the half steps occur between the third and fourth and the seventh and eighth tones.

The major scale consists of consecutive tones (half and whole steps) from one letter name to its repetition above or below, such as C D E F G A B C, in which all are whole steps except those from E to F (3 to 4) and B to C (7 to 8) in succession, which are half steps. This is called a diatonic scale?, because the scale steps follow the letter names in succession without alteration and include five whole steps and two half steps in a definite pattern.
