Double Sharps And Double Flats????????
I WAS GIVEN A BLANK KEYBOARD AND I WAS ASKED TO FIND THE SHARPS, FLATS, DOUBLE FLATS AND DOUBLE SHARPS. CAN ANY ONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME??
EXAMPLE: THE "D" CHORD IS SUPPOSE TO BE Ebb, D, AND Cx (HOW DID THEY GET THIS?)
Ebb, D, AND Cx
This is all the same note
Ebb double flat is D
Cx doulbe sharp is D also
Yes I do understand that they are enharmonics, what I dont understand is how D turned into Ebb flat and so on......
Its the Same thing Ebb double flat= D = Cx double sharp
its just saying the same thing 3 different ways thats all
Put your finger on the note E and then put your finger on Eb on the piano
now put your finger on Ebb double flat on the piano its now D
Put your finger on the note C on the piano now put your finger on C# on the piano , now put your finger on C## its now D
SO FOR THE "B" CHORD WOULD IT BE: Bbb Ax???
Does It Depend On Whole Steps And Half Steps??
C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B C
could be written as
C Db D Eb E F Gb G Ab A Bb B C
or (if you are being silly)
B# C# Cx D# Dx E# F# Fx G# Gx A# Ax B#
Dbb Db Ebb Eb Fb Gbb Gb Abb Ab Bbb Bb Cb
How this is helpful to anyone is beyond me! I think the point of the exercise is to understand that a b is half step down, a # is a half step up, a bb is a whole step down and a x is a whole step up.
