Imagine you have a group of musical notes that you play in a particular order, creating a pleasant and familiar sound. This sequence of notes is called a “scale”. One of the most common scales is the “Major Scale”.
The Major scale has a happy and uplifting feeling, like when the sun shines brightly, and everything feels good. It’s a bit like the musical version of a smile. You can recognize this scale by its specific pattern of notes.
Apart from scales, the term “Major” is also used to describe chords and keys. A chord is a group of three or more notes played together to create harmony. When you stack specific notes from the Major scale on top of each other, you get a “Major chord.” This chord has a joyful and stable sound, making it very pleasing to the ear.
Likewise, when a song is said to be in a “Major key,” it means the song revolves around the notes of the Major scale. This contributes to the song’s overall happy and bright atmosphere.
