Señor maestro is a great app..    Wanted to know if anyone out there has a sheet that names the tones...    For example if you select the " C " scale in senor maestro,  the keys or letters C, E   light up  the next tone from C is D, or RE, but is it RE menor,  Mayor or Sostenido ?   That's is what i wanna learn.  Anyone have information ???

For any major scale, number its notes, 1-7. The chords formed on those notes will be as follows:
Major: 1, 4, 5
Minor: 2, 3, 6
Diminished: 7

Using the C major scale as an example:
C, D, E, F, G, A, B

Major chords: C, F, G
Minor chords: D, E, A
Diminished: B

Keep in mind that a chord is defined by at least three notes. Two notes only gives you an interval.

That formula applies to any major scale. Work out the chords for other scales as an exercise. Post your answers here.

Remember, two notes do not make a chord. The interval denoted as 6th in the program is an inversion of the 3rd interval. Same notes, C and E, but inverted as regards to pitch.

Intervals can be minor or major depending on the number of half tones between the interval.
Major interval, 5 semitones, C, C#, D, D#, E
Minor interval, 4 semitones, E, F, F#, G

Those two intervals together give you:
Major chord, C-E-G

Ok what I understood was :

C :   C Dm Mm F G Am  Bd     
D :   D Mm Fm G A Bm Cd
E :   E Fm Gm A B Cm Dd
F :   F Gm Am B C Dm Ed
G :   G Am Bm C D Mm Fd
A :   A Bm Cm D M Fm Gd
B :   B Cm Dm M F Gm Ld

Is this correct ?    Or was i suppose to use the " # " insted or the " m "

How do you lable the 7th Tone?   is that right with a " d "

minor and major apply differently than sharp (#) and flat (b);

the chords I mentioned are all 3 note chords (triads);

I suggest you take a step back and get some background on building scales and chords.  The following posts should shed some light, look at the ones labeled 1..., 2..., 3... through 6.
