#beginquote# JFG, If my Music Theory memory is correct and if not anyone can correct me if I am wrong you're dealing with the number of semi-tones - which are tones between two notes that make up an interval. For example, ascending you may have C, C#, C dbl #, D, D#, D double #, and so forth. Descending you may have F, F flat, F double flat, E, E flat, E double flat, etc ... This may sound confusing but if you take your time with it and realize that enharmonics (tones with different names that sound the same depending on the key you are using) are the "key" here (no pun intended), this will get easier to understand. For example, in the Circle of fifths you see the key of G which only has one sharp - F#. However that same tone is found in the key of G flat and is in fact the very same note although now the name is G flat. I hope that this helps. "Be Not Afraid" JPII #endquote#
