A “minor” is any sound below a half-step up (two cycles). For example, 10 semitones (5/4ths) is larger than a minuscule two thirds, or a half, octave.
“A half” semitone
(a tiny difference) is smaller than a minuscule two quarter (8/16ths). A 5 semitone (= 1/8 of a semitone) is also small, so this is usually an all-important distinction. Most of the world has heard the term “minor” used to refer to a difference of 2-4 semitones or less, and even many musicians tend to believe that it can be a useful term.
But it can be deceptive. In fact, a subtle difference of 5 semitones can be larger than a subtle difference of 4 semitones (that could be two or more semitones).
In my next book — I’ll talk about scales and scales and how they scale, what a scale is, and so on. And I’ll discuss all this in terms of “the major scale”, i.e. what makes a scale. But first, I’ll talk about the different sizes of scales as well as the differences between them.
The first is the size of the scale:
The major scale is the largest scale known to mankind. It encompasses all of nature and every natural phenomenon. It is the standard scale used to play most instruments. It’s also the scale that gives us “the sound” of most musical instruments: we can hear it in our ears, as a “muted sound”. It’s the scale of the human voice. It is, therefore, the scale most common among humans and of what we most closely agree to as one sound: the “muted sound”.
The same can be seen within musical instruments. Some pianos use an A minor scale, some use a D major scale, and so on. These are all the size scales used for playing the piano, and they are also the scale used to “mute” the voice.
The other scale is the smaller scale to be used for performing: the “minor” scale. If you use a minuscule 2/4-5/8ths scale, you “mute” the tone as soon as you put your hands on a piano. If you use an anemically tiny 2/4-5/8ths scale, you
