Scales are really lonely and simply want to be loved. Do you have it in your heart to let them in?

Im confused with octaves. Is the next octave at the 12th note or is it at every seventh note. If you were playing in the key of G would the melody and fill in be in the G scale.
Thanks Stan

An octave spans 12 notes if you count every note between the same note at different octaves. For example:

C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B C

If you’re counting by notes in the major scale, there are 7 notes, starting over on the 8th note.

C D E F G A B C
