Eleni was working on Happy Birthday and asked about the notes in the scale, she saw seven but wondered if there are eight.
Hi Neal. Working on Happy Birthday. Question
C Major shows only 7 notes should it be eight? the eighth being
Octave B? seems like its missing a note, I don’t know this yet
Thought that would be a useful question to share.
On the page with the lesson, I wrote out one octave of it. However, scales can extend from the bottom of the horn to the top of the horn.
Here is the ascending half of the C major scale across the range of the saxophone:
The lowest note is B, the highest note is F.
So notes with the same letter names in the octave below and above are included in the ‘C major scale’.
