  Whole tone scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, a whole tone scale is a scale in which each note is separated from its neighbors by the interval of a whole step.
The whole tone scale is interval cycle 2, or C2.
Since there are only two transpositions of the whole tone scale it is either C2 or C2 The whole tone scale is also maximally even and may be considered a generated collection.

Whole steps occur between adjacent notes with the exception of E to F and B to C which are half steps.
But since we need a whole step between 2 and 3, it is necessary to raise the F to an F# to create the desired whole step.
4 to 5 should be a whole step and that is what we have between G and A. A to B is a whole step and between 5 and 6 we want a whole step.

Each note on your instrument is separated by a whole step, except when we go from B to C, and E to F. Like this: A (1) B (1/2) C (1) D (1) E (1/2) F (1) G (1) A For example: F to G is a whole step.
(W=Whole step, H= Half step) The notes on your instrument are separated this way: A (1) B (1/2) C (1) D (1) E (1/2) F (1) G (1) A "1" indicates a whole step; "1/2" indicates the notes are separated by a half step.

On your guitar, a whole step represents a distance of two frets (the two steps on your imaginary staircase) and a half step represents a distance of one fret (one step on your imaginary staircase).
So, the step pattern of any major scale would be two whole steps followed by a half step, another whole step, and two whole steps followed by a half step.

A major scale is defined to have intervals of a whole step, another whole step, a half step, and then three whole steps followed by a half step back to the root.
A whole step is two half steps, so it is two intervals between notes (from F to G, or from B to C#).
On the guitar, then, a half step is equivalent to one fret, and a whole step is equivalent to two frets.

There is a whole step (two half steps) from one note to another except from B to C and E to F, which are half steps (that is why there’s no B# and E#).
This business of half steps and whole steps can be illustrated best on a piano keyboard: from one key to another (regardless of color) is a half step, and two half steps make a whole step.
Now we can say that in any major scale there is a half step from 3 to 4 and from 7 to 1; except for those two instances, the interval between notes in the major scale is a whole step.

a whole step and a half step are intervals (an interval is a relationship between two notes).
While there are many intervals in music, we're concerned here with the smallest one (a half step) and the next smallest one (a whole step).
For example, we can spell a half step as "c,c sharp" since a half step is the interval which results when you play two adjacent keys on the piano.

The distance between the white keys on a piano is either a half or a whole step depending on where you are on the keyboard.

In the key of C (starting from the 1st degree), the intervallic representation of a sus2 chord can be shown as a (whole) step (C to D) plus two and a half steps (D to G).
The intervallic representation of the sus4 chord can be said to be two and a half steps plus a whole step.
Therefore, in the key of C, a Csus4 chord contains the notes C, F, and G (C to F is two and one half steps wide, and F to G is a whole (one) step wide).

 exercise video reviews: Cathe Friedrich - Step Heat
This tape is very similar to Step Max in structure and choreography, except that instead of the super tough 3rd section ofstep aerobics, Step Heat has a tough abdominal section.
Step Heat is a tape I do if I want to get in a solid half hour of cardio, and still get abs thrown in.
Step Heat is a bit less intense than other Cathe tapes (such as Power Max, Step Works, MIC and of course Interval Max), but it is still an excellent cardio workout.
