is this impossible to know unless you went to university for music?

No witty title?

Great quiz, John. I doubt I'll get 1-3 of these right



Sorry kirb. John is a bit of a spoil sport I guess . My suggestion was

"In-Quiz-Ition Week 4: JohnlJazz15"


Awesome things aside, this does look like a toughy, hurrah!
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

Got my answers in. Took a FREAKING long time, because i was double checking my stuff, and trying to convert double sharps to other notes to comprehend easier..basically making stuff more complicated than it is. But thats just how my mind works. Not convenient.

Also, speaking of inconvinience, i had to send mine in 2 PMs because my answers were long.

EDIT: i had to fix #5 because i just came across the answer..so if you see three messages from me, read pt 1, then the fix, then pt 2. Sorry for clogging up your PM box

Word. I probably won't do particularly well, but that'd give me a lot to set my sights on learning.

#2 seems pretty fundamentally flawed. No one in their right mind would choose to look at that group of notes in that way...zero application at all. Still fun to think about...I'm not sure how to make those particular tones into the chord that you are looking for.

I assume we can't look at it enharmonically, right? Otherwise it would be pretty easy.

EDIT: Got it, and it was a lot more intuitive than I thought it would be. And I retract my statement about not having any application.

Yeah, once you look at it the right way, it seems to fall into place pretty nicely.

Unless I did it totally wrong

Question 3 seems kind of vague...could you be more specific about what it's asking for? There are 16 chords built on four different sets of tones that I can think of off the top of my head that fit the description of symmetrical in the octatonic scale....

^Yeah, I kind of messed up on that one and then realised it when I got a load of answers I didn't want, but are still right.

So any four symmetrical chords you can build from it will be accepted as a correct answer.

.. and #2 isn't me being tricky, the notes are written like that to show the function of each note - if I'd have written them enharmonically, I would have got a load of wrong answers (I got one submission from someone who looked at them enharmonically and ended up getting it wrong).. so they do have an application.

@6DgOfInTb - Hey it's no problem.

There's been 10 submissions so far, so keep 'em coming - and use this as a warm up for when Cor posts his quiz, heh.

lol, I think that's me now that I look at it without using enharmonics... I found another answer. Whoops
