E major - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (275 words)
E major is a major scale based on E, consisting of the pitches E, F#, G#, A, B, C#, D# and E.
Its relative minor is C-sharp minor, and its parallel minor is E minor.
Also, E major is the key for the final movements of Rachmaninov's Symphony No. 2 and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10.
Major scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1347 words)
The major scale has seven notes (plus the inclusion of the tonic of the next scale to complete an octave, in practice), which in solfege are the syllables "Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti (and Do)." At the piano keyboard, the simplest major scale is C major (see figure 1).
It is unique in that it is the only major scale to not use sharps or flats on the musical staff and, likewise, only the white notes on the keyboard.
Because the difference between an E and an F is actually a semitone (look on a piano keyboard, there is no 'fl note' in-between them) it is necessary to raise the F to become an F-sharp to achieve a difference of a whole tone.
