Topic: Quick Consonance Question

Hi all, how are you?
A quick question for my study.
A second (either major or minor) is no consonant interval right??
A quick answer will do

I think just minor, and major 2nd intervals are dissonant. An augmented 2nd would be a minor 3rd, which would be consonant. So yeah, minor and major 2nds are not consonant.

Consonance and dissonance is relative. In some styles Major 2nds sound quite consonant. It all depends on its relative dissonance compared to chords or sounds around it.
