It will be perceived that in each succeeding new scale, the fourth of the
old scale is taken as one of the new, and that an additional flat is used
REMAna-Other modulations may be procured by continuing to-use additional
but as they would not be of any practical use, we omit them here. Questions
should be 
proposed on all the scales, as in the key of F, and the practice of tunes
should be intro- 
duced in all these keys, in the order of the transpositions as above. 
EvERY major has its relative minor scale, founded on the third letter 
below, i. e. the relative minor to C is A; to D, B, &c. The order of
vals in the minor scale is the same as shown on page 17, in all cases. 
1. What is the relative minor scale to G major? Answer. E. 
2. What is the signature of the relative minor to any major scale? A. 
The same as its major. 
3. What is the signature of E minor? A. One sharp. 
4. Is it necessary to introduce any accidentals in the minor scale ? A. 
Yes; the seventh is always sharped both in ascending and descending in 
the Harmonic form (for example, See page 17); but in the Melodic form 
only in ascending.
