I'm not sure which section this thread should be in, but I have a question about tuning. I think I have heard people talk about how sharp notes can be the same as flat notes and vice versa if that makes any sense. For example, B flat is the same as A sharp. Is this true? B flat is half a step below B and A sharp is half a step above A. It just makes sense to me that they would be the same note. Is this true? And does it work this way for all notes?

Yeah Bb is the same thing as A#

If you have a G# that the same thing as a Ab

# (Sharp)
b (Flat)

If you got a Cb then it's a B

Ok thanks. So it works that way with all notes?

It works that way with all notes except B/C and E/F have no "sharp" or "flat" step between them. Sometimes in certain pieces of music, the note may be labeled B# to be correct in theoritical terms, but B# is the same as C. Cb is B. E# is F. Fb is E. Make sense?
