    Question Question AboutDouble Flats and Double Sharps??

    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?)

    I don't think they mean chords here, they mean notes.

    D = Ebb = C##

    They are enharmonic equivalents, they are the same note.

    For example let's take D and move it up in half steps:

    D D# E yes?

    Or we could simply say D D# D##.

    D## = E

    So take E and mopve it down in half steps

    E Eb D

    Or E Eb Ebb

    And C up in half steps C C# C##

    Both ways here we arrive at the same note but just have different names for it Ebb D and C##

    Hope that helps.
