My revert

Sorry, I had to revert the last changes of JosephRuhf and restored the version of 5th Nov. 2016

The intervals given in the newly added chord column were wrong. @Joseph: please let's discuss changes like this first!

Can we define "tone"

We need an exact defintioin or this doesn't mean much.

Whole tones not good enough for you?

Josef Yasser defined a centitone as 100 divisions of a whole tone (200 cents). Even by this (whacked-up) standard, a tone is still a whole-tone.

No, it is completely meaningless to say "whole tone" if you are using it to give a precise measurement. If you want to use cents, that would be fine.

Why diatonic?

I'm wondering why a nine-note scale is called "diatonic". Who called it that, and why?

- genewardsmith May 30, 2010, 04:21:31 PM UTC-0700

I call it Diatonic, nothing more than simple common sense to describe a peculiar form. For example if I have the form, which in sight, it looks like an ascending-sequential or whatever you want to call, as it is: LsLLs, logically I'm going to compare with the known form of which is called "Diatonic" LLsLLLs

who is in Number Ascending of its alterations, in the case of "Diatonic" is 2 and 3. Therefore, in view of previous reports, you will notice that the diatonic form is NOT exclusive of 7 notes, but also can be called Diatonic the: LsLLs, LLLsLLLLs and LLLLsLLLLLs forms (Alterations (1 and 2)(3 and 4)(4 and 5)) Understand?
