Sound waves are produces when objects vibrate. An instrument can vibrate to produce sound. A loudspeaker can vibrate to produce sound. Sound transmission. Sound waves travel through air. Sound can also travel through water. In space there is no sound because there is no medium for sound to travel in. Sound perception. The ear hears sound by small delicate ear bones being set into motion by sound waves. The human ear can hear a spectrum of sound from approximately x to y megahertz. Sounds below and above are inaudible. The pure tone is a sine wave. Pure tones seldom exist in nature. Pure tones can be created electronically and observed visually using an oscilloscope. wwwwwwwwww Sounds are described by amplitude, frequency and timbre. Amplitude - loudness. Measured in decibels. Frequency - pitch. Measured in megahertz. Timbre - shape of tone, presence of overtones. The same note played on different instruments produces different timbres. Measured how? Described how? wwwwwwwwww Octave - a doubling of the megahertz. Harmonics or overtones. For any tone, overtones are produced at 1/2 and 1/4 the pitch, etc. Some harmonics below and above the ears hearing ability are inaudible Middle C is how many megahertz? What is the megahertz of each note in the diatonic scale? wwwwwwwwww Pitch Perfect pitch. Hear a note and name it. Name a note and sing it. Relative pitch. Hear an interval and name it. Name an internal and play it. Hear a root note and play any interval to it. Universal recognition of pitch? If given a machine that shows the frequency in megahertz for any pitch. What frequency would most people center on as root, if any? wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Scales, modes, intervals. wwwwwwwwww Scales Scales defined as how many steps. Western twelve tone diatonic scale Twelve equidistant steps. C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, Why isn't it 14 steps? Where are E# and B#? C, C#, D, D#, E, E#, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, B#, Why not 24 equidistant steps? Does the Western twelve tone scale have the same megahertz interval between each note? In ancient music the octave was recognized first. Then the fifth. Then the fourth. The second, third, sixth and seventh were recognized later. Pentatonic scale: 5 steps. Blues scale. Root. Minor third. Fourth. Fifth. Seventh. Scales defined as the interval pattern in the steps Western major scale 8 steps with major third. Example: cdefgabc Why is it eight steps? Why not 7 or 9 steps? Minor scale: 8 steps with minor third Minor scales Natural minor scale Harmonic minor scale Melodic minor scale Pentatonic scale - folk music scale Whole tone scale - six tones. Used by impressionists Twelve tone scale wwwwwwwww Modes. Starting point of scales Major modes. Eight major modes, starting on each note of major scale. ? Minor modes. Eight minor modes, starting on each note of minor scale. ? Ionian mode Dorian mode Phygian mode Lydian mode Mixolydian mode Aeolian mode Locrian mode wwwwwwwwww Intervals - the distance between when two notes are played 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th Perfect interval - 4th, 5th, 8th. Dropping down a 5th is like going up a 4th. Major interval - 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th Minor interval - 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th Diminished interval - reduced by a semitone. Augmented interval - raised by a semitone. wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Chords Three note chords. Four note chords. Five note chords.

Next - vary tempo and accent beats with volume or pitch Next - irregular beat, tempo or time. Example, jazz syncopation. Next - combine rhythms in songs, either serially one after another or simultaneously layered Rhythms of 1 beat per second (60 beats per minute) Rhythms of the human heart at rest (70 to 90 beats per minute) Rhythms of the human heart at exercise (90 to 130 beats per minute) Rhythms of the human breathing rate at rest (20 breaths per minute) Rhythms of the human breathing rate at exercise (60 breaths per minute) Set rhythm - fixed beat. Free rhythm - no fixed beat Syncopated rhythm - altering timing of beat Time signatures 2/2 4/4 Unfamiliar time signatures Example, Dave Brubeck's Take Five wwwwwwwwww Rythmn exercises and experiments Time No beats.

Blues and the harmonica. wwwwwwwwww Typical harmonica layout. A typical harmonica has ten holes. The holes are numbered 1 to 10 from left to right. The pitch of the holes increases from left to right. Each hole lets you play one note when you blow and a second note when you draw. For example, C major scale harmonica. Hole 1. Blow C. Draw D. Hole 2. Blow E. Draw G. Hole 3. Blow G. Draw B. Hole 4. Blow C. Draw D. Hole 5. Blow E. Draw F. Hole 6. Blow G. Draw A. Hole 7. Blow C. Draw B. Hole 8. Blow E. Draw D. Hole 9. Blow G. Draw F. Hole 10. Blow C. Draw A. Observe: Holes 1 through 6 draw a higher note than blow. Holes 7 through 10 draw a lower note than blow. wwwwwwwwww General layout pattern. According (accordion?) to the above chart, the hole layout of a harmonica for the general major scale I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII is the following Hole 1. Blow I. Draw II. Hole 2. Blow III. Draw V. Hole 3. Blow V. Draw VII. Hole 4. Blow I. Draw II. Hole 5. Blow III. Draw IV. Hole 6. Blow V. Draw VI. Hole 7. Blow I. Draw VII. Hole 8. Blow III. Draw II. Hole 9. Blow V. Draw IV. Hole 10. Blow I. Draw VII. wwwwwwwwww Two hole intervals. If you play two adjacent holes, here are the possibilities, the general pattern produced, and the distance of the interval. HOLES GENERAL PATTERN INTERVAL DISTANCE Holes 1 and 2 blow. I and III. (a major third interval) Holes 1 and 2 draw. II and V. ( ) Holes 2 and 3 blow. III and V. Holes 2 and 3 draw. V and VII. Holes 3 and 4 blow. V and I. Holes 3 and 4 draw. VII and II. Holes 4 and 5 blow. I and III. Holes 4 and 5 draw. II and IV. Holes 5 and 6 blow. III and V. Holes 5 and 6 draw. IV and VI.

Holes 9 and 10 blow. V and I. Holes 9 and 10 draw. IV and VII. wwwwwwwwww Three hole chords. If you play three adjacent holes, here are the possibilities, the general note pattern they produce, and the type of chord described. HOLES GENERAL PATTERN CHORD TYPE Holes 1, 2 and 3 blow. I, III and V. (a major third chord) Holes 1, 2 and 3 draw. II, V and VII. ( ) Holes 2, 3 and 4 blow. III, V and I. Holes 2, 3 and 4 draw. V, VII and II. Holes 3, 4 and 5 blow. V, I and III.

Holes 6, 7 and 8 blow. V, I and III. Holes 6, 7 and 8 draw. VI, VII and II. Holes 7, 8 and 9 blow. I, III and V. Holes 7, 8 and 9 draw. VII, II and IV. Holes 8, 9 and 10 blow. III, V and I. Holes 8, 9 and 10 draw. II, IV and VII. wwwwwwwwww Blues and the harmonica. Most guitar blues are played in a pentatonic e minor scale: E, G, A, B, D A blues harmonica that plays in unison with a guitar will also play the pentatonic e mior scale of E, G, A, B, D. According (accordion?) to the "circle of fifths", each minor scale has a corresponding major scale that shares the same notes. On the circle of fifths, what major scale corresponds to the e minor scale? G major? Get a harmonica in that major scale and you will be able to play blues in e minor on that harmonica?
