I have been doing some aural training on http://www.justinguitar.com/en/AU-104-AuralTraining-Stage4.php
Now these intervals confused the *** out of me.
All the minor scales I know have a Root note then skip one fret and then get the minor second, but here you get the root note and the following fret is the minor second. . . If I look at example on this site's melodic minor scales patterns you get a rootnote then skip a note and then get the minor second?

For example (R)(c#)(D)

A minor 2nd will always be only 1 half step
A major 2nd will always be two half steps (1 full step)

a minor second is half a step up from the root if you go up a whole step its a major second
