Hey, this is Troy Roberts here. We're going to talk about how to play the E-flat major scale on the alto saxophone today, and its relative minor. The intervocalic construction of any major scale is made up of whole step, whole step, half step, whole step, whole step, whole step, half step. Now this scale has three flats in its key signature: E-flat, A-flat, and B-flat. Here's what the major scale sounds like in two octaves.
The relative minor of any major scale is the same notes of major scale but starting from the sixth scale degree. In some cases it's easier to think of it as a minor third down from the root.
Here they are again, a little faster.
