Hey. This is Troy Roberts and today we're going to talk about how to play the C major scale on the alto saxophone and its relative minor.
The intervallic construction of any major scale is made up of whole step, whole step, half step. Whole step, whole step, whole step, half step.
There are no sharps or flats in this key signature. So here is two octaves of the C major scale.
So, the relative minor of any scale is the same notes of the scale but starting from the sixth scale degree. And in some cases it's easier to think of it as a minor third down from the root.
And there they are a little quicker.
