Steve Lawson and Gonzo can get you thinking out of the box right here.

An interesting take on an old quesiton.

Answer: Around 90, not 12 like everybody thinks!

People believe that there are 12 notes in music. No there aren't because a middle C (for example) doesn't represent any other C note in music other than itself. Other C's are different pitches and therefore different notes.

There are around 90 usable different notes in music, completely different from one another even if they share similar names. It isn't the name, it's the pitch that counts. It's a small point, but I thought that it was time to tell you something that nobody else has ever told you before.

Have a great weekend.


I never really thought of it like that. Not sure that I do now. Have to meditate on this one a bit. What is your take on this concept?

Indeed and thats just western music, go to India or Bulgaria or any eastern country and you end up with 1/4 tones etc...

Seems like I have seen a fretted 1/4 tone bass attempt.
