Please tell me what a "Sigma" step is, relative to the whole and half steps when building a scale. Thank you.

Following up on my preceding post questioning what a Sigma Step is I forgot I should verify if I have the right steps for forming a scale!

MAJOR SCALE
C D E F G A B C
W W H W W W H

MINOR SCALE
A B C D E F G A
W H W W H W W

Thank you.

That's how you call to the step connecting two tetrachords.
And yup, your structures are correct.

Thank you. Can you tell me relative to the Major Scale I posted above which step is it, or is it an additional step?

Thank you.

The C-major scale that you posted above is composed of two tetrachords. (C-D-E-F & G-A-B-C). So if the "Sigma" step is the step between them, then it would be F-G.
