Natural Note Interval Chart

Take any note in the far left column and move up to the nearest note by the name in any other column. The cell contains the name of the interval formed by those two notes. For example, start with E in the far left column and go up to G in column 6. The cell corresponding to E and G is m3, or a minor third.
