The overwhelming outpouring of enthusiastic comments on my previous post saying, in effect, ‘Duh…?!’, together with some technical background stuff from Calmgrove, encouraged me to expand upon the infliction.
Here I do an even more obscure version of my graphics showing some of the relationships, and revealing how the same terms exist no matter where you start. Whatever beginning note is chosen becomes the ‘Do’ or ‘Tonic’ or ‘Key Note’. First, here’s the Really Awful Rhyme, again:
Do, a Tonic or Key Note,
Re, on Supertonic shines,
Mi, for Mediant you quote,
Fa, Sub-Dominant defines,
So, to Dominant must go,
La, Sub-Mediant will show,
Te, as Leading Note, below
Do, next Tonic up, assigns!
Now, it is time I got back to normal with posts. By now, hopefully, my accustomed Caption Public will be back to blogging, and some more votes can go on my sadly delayed Caption Competition. Go there now, or else!*
I have been doing some more writing on my neglected Darx Circle novel during which I managed to complete 2500 words in a challenging section, so perhaps I can also put in some more episodes. Even for those not following the story, they may provide some amusement.
*or else it will stay a bit short of votes from voters who should have voted
