G (musical note)

Sol, So, or G is the fifth note of the fixed-Do solfège starting on C. As such it is the dominant, a perfect fifth above C or perfect fourth below C. When calculated in equal temperament with a reference of A above middle C as 440 Hz, the frequency of Middle G (G4) note is approximately 391.995 Hz. [1]

Acoustic scale

In music, the acoustic scale, overtone scale, Lydian dominant scale, or Lydian 7 scale, is a seven-note synthetic scale which, starting on C, contains the notes: C, D, E, F, G, A and B. This differs from the major scale in having a raised fourth and lowered seventh scale degree.

Aeolian dominant scale

The Aeolian dominant scale is the fifth mode of the melodic minor scale (ascending, also known as jazz minor scale).

Aeolian mode

The Aeolian mode is a musical mode or, in modern usage, a diatonic scale called the natural minor scale.

Altered scale

In jazz, the altered scale or altered dominant scale is a seven-note scale that is a dominant scale where all non-essential tones have been altered.

C (musical note)

In terms of musical pitch, C or Do is the first note of the fixed-Do solfège scale.

Diatonic scale

In music theory, a diatonic scale (or heptatonia prima) is a scale composed of seven distinct pitch classes.

Dominant (music)

In music, the dominant is the fifth scale degree of the diatonic scale, called "dominant" because it is next in importance to the tonic, and a dominant chord is any chord built upon that pitch, using the notes of the same diatonic scale.

Dorian ♭2 scale

The Dorian 2 scale, also known as Phrygian #6 is the second mode of the jazz minor scale (or the ascending melodic minor scale).

Dorian mode

Dorian mode or Doric mode can refer to three very different but interrelated subjects: one of the Ancient Greek harmoniai (characteristic melodic behaviour, or the scale structure associated with it), one of the medieval musical modes, or, most commonly, one of the modern modal diatonic scales, corresponding to the white notes from D to D, or any transposition of this, for example the scale from C to C with both E and B flatted.

Equal temperament

An equal temperament is a musical temperament, or a system of tuning, in which every pair of adjacent pitches is separated by the same interval.

G major

G major (or the key of G) is a major scale based on G, with the pitches G, A, B, C, D, E, and sharp.

G minor

G minor is a minor scale based on G, consisting of the pitches G, A, flat, C, D, Eflat, and F. For the harmonic minor scale, the F is raised to F. Its relative major is B-flat major, and its parallel major is G major.

Half diminished scale

The half diminished scale is a musical scale more commonly known as "Locrian 2", name which avoids confusion with the diminished scales (see octatonic scales) and the half-diminished seventh chord (min. 7, flat 5).

Hertz

The hertz (symbol Hz) is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI) and is defined as one cycle per second.

Ionian mode

Ionian mode is the name assigned by Heinrich Glarean in 1547 to his new authentic mode on C (mode 11 in his numbering scheme), which uses the diatonic octave species from C to the C an octave higher, divided at G (as its dominant, reciting note or tenor) into a fourth species of perfect fifth (tone–tone–semitone–tone) plus a third species of perfect fourth (tone–tone–semitone): C D E F G + G A B C. This octave species is essentially the same as the major mode of tonal music.

Lydian augmented scale

In music, the Lydian augmented scale (Lydian 5 scale) is the third mode of the ascending melodic minor scale or jazz minor scale.

Lydian mode

The modern Lydian musical scale is a rising pattern of pitches comprising three whole tones, a semitone, two more whole tones, and a final semitone.

Mixolydian mode

Mixolydian mode may refer to one of three things: the name applied to one of the ancient Greek harmoniai or tonoi, based on a particular octave species or scale; one of the medieval church modes; a modern musical mode or diatonic scale, related to the medieval mode.

Musical note

In music, the term note has two primary meanings.

New!!: G (musical note) and Musical note · See more »

Perfect fifth

In music theory, a perfect fifth is the musical interval corresponding to a pair of pitches with a frequency ratio of 3:2, or very nearly so.

Perfect fourth

In classical music from Western culture, a fourth is a musical interval encompassing four staff positions (see Interval number for more details), and the perfect fourth is a fourth spanning five semitones (half steps, or half tones).

Phrygian mode

The Phrygian mode (pronounced) can refer to three different musical modes: the ancient Greek tonos or harmonia sometimes called Phrygian, formed on a particular set of octave species or scales; the Medieval Phrygian mode, and the modern conception of the Phrygian mode as a diatonic scale, based on the latter.

Piano key frequencies

This is a list of the absolute frequencies in hertz (cycles per second) of the keys of a standard modern 88-key piano in twelve-tone equal temperament, with the 49th key, the fifth A (called A4), tuned to 440 Hz (referred to as A440).

Pitch (music)

Pitch is a perceptual property of sounds that allows their ordering on a frequency-related scale, or more commonly, pitch is the quality that makes it possible to judge sounds as "higher" and "lower" in the sense associated with musical melodies.

Scientific pitch notation

Scientific pitch notation (or SPN, also known as American Standard Pitch Notation (ASPN) and International Pitch Notation (IPN)) is one of several methods that name the notes of the standard Western chromatic scale by combining a letter name, accidentals, and a number identifying the pitch's octave.
