Quote by Peanut1614

Hey, hey, hey it’s UG’s No.1 Nut here This is the first quiz I’ve done so bear with me! Its aimed at basic - intermediate theory knowledge and doesn’t require being able to read music! There are also some basic music history questions so swat up…

Heres some links to help you:

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=503032 < Most of you have probably never seen this before ( ) but check it out!
http://library.thinkquest.org/15413/theory/theory.htm

Here it is:

1. List the modes of the major scale, and give an example of each in your chosen key(s). (7 points)

2. Give me the names of the following cadences:

V - I
IV - I
I - V
V - vi
(4 points)

3. Name these chords:


E 5 14 2 6 1
B 5 13 3 6 1
G 6 13 4 6 1
D 5 13 5 4 1
A
E

(5 points)

4. Give me the notes for the V7 chord of the A minor scale and tell me which scale it’s borrowed from and why.
(3 points)

5. Tell which which key has:

No sharps or flats -
1 # -
1 b -
2 #s -
2 b’s -
(4 points)

6. Explain to me what a tritone is and what type of chord has a tritone in it. (2 points)

7.Give me an example of tritone substitution. (2 points)

8. What is the leading tone of the E minors relative major’s harmonic minor scale? (1 point)

9. What were distinctive elements of Renaissance era music? (1 point)

10. When did the Baroque period begin and end? (1 point)

So its out of 30!

If anyone copies off Wiki or any other site you get a slap on the wrist and a disqualification! Evil I know…




Send all answers via PM to Peanut1614. Results date TBA.

Too many tests and stuff going on this week. I can't do it now because I should be doing a chemistry lab report >_>

And I thought we were trying to get other people to take the quiz too.

Go to your staff paper and re-write this song a half step down so on the paper it'll be like you have a "C" just move it down to a "B#"




Know your theory, then play like you don't.

Joe, but I get called Peanut in real life as well off some people, take your pick. Peanut gives me more of an air of mystery I think...

i'm intrigued..... were there already 1613 other peanuts around?

or do you just like that number ??




Erm no, they've been my register numbers since reception, always either 14 or 16 so I stuck with them Plus i've never found a site where its been sued before which makes picking user names really easy! Im assuming you'll be entering for this then branny?

EDIT: Okay we've had one submission off Branny so far, competition is high!

Damn, I knew someone would notice that. At first I called you kird, but then I replaced it with Brando, naturally spelling it with a cap. B.

Screw it. *edited original post*

The last two are very ambiguous so ill give you marks for practically anything.... People seem to be struggling with 1 particular question though, I think i've worded it wrongly... One person has it though so if you get it as well then it shuodl be fine

And yeah, I didn't know the last two, but I think my guess for the Baroque one was relatively close.

And yeah, the last two were kind of hard. My music teacher never taught me anything about rennaisance music.
