#beginquote# Perfect intervals are called perfect becuase they are notes which blend together so perfectly that when played they almost sound like one note giving no hint of being major or minor. They give no tonality. The book was refering to the fact that we do not use the terms major or minor with these intervals. In other words: C-G = per 5, C-G#=Aug 5, Cb-G = Dim 5. Do not make the assumption that flats and sharps always indicate black keys. All notes on the keyboard have enharmonic spellings for example: c natural=B#=D Double flat. These notes have different spells , but on the keyboard they refer to the same note. Also the word interval refers to the distance between two notes. The bottom and top notes can be any notes. You seem to relate things to C major but make sure that you realize the bottom note is not always C. #endquote#
