Of or pertaining to that one of the three kinds of musical scale (diatonic, chromatic, enharmonic) recognized by the ancient Greeks, which consisted of quarter tones and major thirds, and was regarded as the most accurate.
Pertaining to a change of notes to the eye, while, as the same keys are used, the instrument can mark no difference to the ear, as the substitution of Aþ for G#.
Pertaining to a scale of perfect intonation which recognizes all the notes and intervals that result from the exact tuning of diatonic scales and their transposition into other keys.
A written musical note when notated as a sharp, flat or natural foreign to the conventional notation of the key in which the note is played. For example, that note which may be alternatively expressed as Eb or is found in the key of B. Denoting that note as is harmonic to the key of , but expressing that identical note as Eb is enharmonic to the key of . fingering system The arrangement of the buttons on an accordion and the order of assignment of notes to those buttons.
a note that can be called one of two names
An enharmonic is a note that sounds the same but is written differently on the staff, such as F# and Gb.
different spellings for the same tone (ex. Bb and A#)
a term which refers to two pitches which are written differently but sound the same, such as F-sharp and G-flat. Can also be used to refer to keys which sound the same but are written differently, such as F-sharp major and G-flat major.
the relationship between two pitch classes that represent the same note: i.e. G# and Ab. It may also help to think of it as two different letter names that represent the same key on the piano.
Enharmonic tones are tones derived from different degrees, but practically identical in pitch; like c# and db on the piano or guitar... Enharmonic chords are chords differing in notation but alike in sound; such chords are called "enharmonically changed", and passing from one to the other is an enharmonic modulation"... Enharmonic interval, one formed between 2 enharmonic tones.
Two intervals that share the same distance but different spellings, ex. aug 2nd, min. 3rd.
someone who can tell the difference between C# and Db
Two tones having the same pitch but different spelling.
Notes that are one and the same though named differently.
A term used to describe notes of the same pitch which have different names, e.g. c and d , f and g .
In modern music, an enharmonic is a note (or key signature) which is the equivalent of some other note (or key signature), but spelled differently. For example, in twelve-tone equal temperament (the modern system of musical tuning in the west), the notes Câ™¯ (C sharp) and Dâ™ (D flat) are enharmonically equivalent - that is, they are represented by the same key (on a musical keyboard, for example), and thus are identical in pitch, although they have different names and diatonic functionality.
