TOPIC: Theory diagram on the disk

Theory diagram on the disk 1 week 21 hours ago #9806

Questions about the diagram on the disc called Basic Theory.
1. What does this diagram represent: A piano keyboard or a Ukulele finger board? Or something else?
2. Do these letters (C,D etc.) represent sounds?
3. How can a box such as 2 represent two sounds C# and Db?
4. If the sound in box 1 represents the sound C how can the box called Octave also be called C since the sound in the two boxes must be different from each other? Can two different sounds have the same name?
5. If I understood this diagram what use am I to make of this information?

Questions about the diagram on the disc called Basic Theory.
1. What does this diagram represent: A piano keyboard or a Ukulele finger board? Or something else?

The diagram represents the musical alphabet. It applies to all instruments.


2. Do these letters (C,D etc.) represent sounds?

The letters represent the pitches (also called notes) on an instrument


3. How can a box such as 2 represent two sounds C# and Db?

Sharps and flats are two names for the same note. They are notes (black keys on a piano) that fall between the natural notes (white keys on the piano. These note are found on all instruments but obviously a Ukulele does not have white and black frets to distinguish one from the other.

4. If the sound in box 1 represents the sound C how can the box called Octave also be called C since the sound in the two boxes must be different from each other? Can two different sounds have the same name?

An octave is twelve notes apart. It is a higher pitch than the lower note of the same name. There are more than one of each note on your instrument.

5. If I understood this diagram what use am I to make of this information?

The musical alphabet has a similar use as your English alphabet. You would not be able to write or speak words and sentences without knowing the alphabet and how it is used. In music, chords, scales and melody lines are all built from the alphabet.
