Use the Major Scale Intervals as a reference for this lesson:

W W H W W W H

For a C Major Scale:

C D E F G A B C

For a G Major Scale:

G A B C D E F# G

For an A Major Scale:

A B C# D E F# G# A

Also...

Use the Interval Name List as reference for this lesson as is shows the Interval Name and the Note Names based on what note we are calling the "Root":


Interval Name:   R       b2/b9     2/9      #9-b3     M3-b4/b11    4/11       #4/#11-b5       5       #5-b6/b13      6/13-bb7        b7       M7     R

If our Root was C, these would be the Note Names for the Intervals:

Note Name:      C      C#/Db      D       D#/Eb            E              F              F#/Gb         G          G#/Ab          A               A#/Bb      B      C
Interval Name:   R       b2/b9     2/9      #9-b3     M3-b4/b11    4/11       #4/#11-b5       5       #5-b6/b13      6/13-bb7        b7       M7     R

If the Root was G, these would be the Note Names for the Intervals:

Note Name:      G      G#/Ab      A       A#/Bb            B              C              C#/Db        D          D#/Eb              E               F         F#      G
Interval Name:   R       b2/b9     2/9      #9-b3     M3-b4/b11    4/11       #4/#11-b5       5       #5-b6/b13      6/13-bb7        b7       M7     R

You could change the Root Note to any note and match the Interval Names to the Note Names.

Simply we can write out the Note Names chromatically from the Root note. Then we can apply the static list of Interval Names to each of the Note Names.
