About the difference between major and minor scales

Home / Quora Answers / About the difference between major and minor scales

A Quoran asked about the difference between major and minor scales…

I tried to put myself into the shoes of someone who would ask this question below. In doing so my goal was not only to answer the question but to show the beautiful symmetry of sounds and modes, and how just like putting beads (ie intervals) on a necklace you can create beautiful jewelry. Make sure to play these sounds, try them on your bass and listen. Find yourself immersed in familiar and not so familiar sounds. Which one is your favorite? Please let me know in the comments!

Here is the post on Quora:
