Notes: C, Eb, F, G, and Bb - Key: C - Origin: Chinese - Category: Hexatonic Scales
The C Qing Shang uses six notes per octave. Because of this same reason it is a member of the so called Hexatonic -scales that have Six-note (or Six-tone). On the piano keyboard, it is made up of two black keys: Eb, and Bb and three white keys: C, F, and G. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Qing Yu, C Quan Ming, and C Ancient Chinese - as great choices for composing or improvising Chinese music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Qing Shang Scale we can find it has two flats and no sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find two accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, Eb, F, G, and Bb.
