I meant what are the names given to the intervals of the chromatic scale.

Say we have C-D-E-F-G-A-B. The interval between C and D is a major second, right? But in the chromatic scale we have C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C which is 12 intervals to arrive at the octave. Now, Guitar Demon said that there are eight types of interval:

prime
2nd
3rd
4th
5th
6th
7th
octave

So what are the other four intervals in the chromatic scale? If I stick with the interval between C and D (major second from what I've gathered) then would the interval between C and C# be a minor second? Similarly, would the interval between C and D# be a minor third and so on?
