There are several notes I should make: The chords used in the first and second sections are these:
scale chord
1) C-D-E-F-G-A-B C-E-G
2)B-C-D-E-F-G-A B-D-F
3)A-B-C-D-E-F-G A-C-E
4)G-A-B-C-D-E-F G-B-D
5)F-G-A-B-C-D-E F-A-C
6)E-F-G-A-B-C-D E-G-B
7)E-F-G#-A-B-C-D E-G#-B
8)D-E-F-G-A-B-C D-F-A
(notice how it can repeat if continued on this pattern. C-major made it pretty simple to go down the list because of the lack of sharps and flats)

-Now for bars 1-16, the scales are utilized in the following order
1, 3, 5, 8, 6, 8, 4, 2
-bars 17 and 18 are just an interlude.
-Bars 19-34 have the following scales also paired up with their corresponding chords in this order
1, 3, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 7
this section also displays what one can do with the scales. Personally, I just threw random melodies together because I was lazy, but you, the listener, should be able to do better.
-After that, the piece becomes a demonstration of what one can do with more advanced knowledge, and the piece takes on a a slightly darker tone.

Well, that's everything for this little tutorial on scales and chords. Hope this helps people.
