Essential Scale Lessons for Ukulele lessons available through Curt Sheller Publications
A scale is simply a collection of notes.
In music, a scale is any set of musical notes ordered by fundamental frequency or pitch. A scale ordered by increasing pitch is an ascending scale, while descending scales are ordered by decreasing pitch. Some scales contain different pitches when ascending than when descending for instance, the Chromatic scale and Melodic minor scale.
Often, part or all of a musical work including melody and/or harmony, is built using the notes of a single scale, which can be conveniently represented on a staff with a standard key signature.
All music originates from scales.
