How To Create Major Scales Harmonized in Thirds

The chart below shows you how to create the C Major Scale Harmonized in Thirds from the scale notes (degrees) of the C Major Scale (C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C). This process can be used to create other Major Scales Harmonized in Thirds. To help you do this, I have included a second chart that shows the scale notes for all the Major keys below.
