halfway through this - and it does look quite promising, maybe i will learn more from later programs.

I was vaguely aware that the pentatonic was common across all cultures but had only really thought about the octave and 5th in terms of frequency relations - are there any obvious frequency relations between the other notes of the pentatonics?

finished episode one and will watch the rest of the series in the coming days. Definitely a good place to point people as an alternative to the crusade lessons if their willing to go more into musical history to see where it comes from rather than just how it works.

Might help to put an end to those "i want to sound like medieval/classical/jazz music what scale should i play threads" well not an end - but it gives mt somewhere to direct people

I watched this series the other day and learnt a lot from it, especially the one on rhythm. It was cool to hear all the influences coming through the ages.

Only looking at music as math and theory, is like only looking at the love of your life as flesh and bone.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
