Ok, so I was looking up funk stuff, and came about something on about.com, and it shows this (which I've used many times before) as a 5th.



I'm confused as to either why this is a 5th, or why they mistook it. The 5th would be G#/Ab wouldn't it?

c# - f# would be a P4 not a fifth.

so yeah. that's wrong.
the fifth would be G#

it wouldn't be a sus4 because it's not a chord. just an interval (or double-stop if you wanna call it that)

a 4 interval is just an inverted 5 interval ie: C - F instead of F - C. if you have a C - F and the bass is playing F, then yes it would be considered an F5 because of the (term of the day here) IMPLIED TONALITY

Do they tell you which 'direction' the interval is in; or which note is played first?

hah, thanks guys. I sorta forgot about the red dot... hah

But yeah, that makes sense now. Although I'm still working on my theory learning, so there's one thing I sorta understood there, not fully though: Would you guys be able to explain more on the thing that a 4th is an inverted 5th? I'm trying to just work out the web of things, so that would help a lot.

the distance from C to F is a perfect 4th (as F is the 4th note of the C major scale)
the distance from F to C is a perfect 5th (C is the 5th not of the F major scale)

so they're the same interval in a sense, just inversions of one another
flip a P4 and you get a P5 and visa versa.
hope that clears it up

So basically...G to D is a 5th, which then makes G the subdom./4th to D, and the same would go for other notes?

inverted interval, it works like this to switch it:
subtract number from 9 and change its property unless its a 4th diminished 5th or 5th

ie:
major third, subtract 3 from 9=6, change the quality, and it becomes a minor 6th
minor 7th, subtract 7 from 9, and change quality to non-minor, and you have a perfet second

if an inversion thats a 5th, its a fourth, if a fourth, its a fifth, if its a diminished fifth, it stays a diminished fifth
