Hi guys I was trying to understand the relationship between keys and scales, from what I understood starting from the basic pitch: A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#
if we start from one and take WWHWWWH
we obtain a major scale if instead we do WHWWHW we obtain a Minor scale.
and so far I understand, now from what I understand a key is simply an unordered set of pitch. instead a scale is an ordered set of pitches.
so for example CDEFGABC is the c major scale instead ABCDEFGA is the A minor scale and they contain the same notes, so they shouldn't be in the same key? so should Cmajor key and A minor key be the same?
and in this way I started from the scale and I said since I take the notes of this scale ( for example a C major) i have a C major Key, so to get a key I always have to start from the scale?
