Au contraire. All music is learnt by ear. These calculations are for answering the questions that arise, such as: why do you have to adjust your D between singing a chord of D minor and one of G major?

Singing by ear is the best introduction to music, as recommended in the first sol-fa entry.smiley - smiley

You'll have to tell me where to find GW or what it is, before I can compare it with h2g2.

I stumbled on hootoo (ie here) about 14 months ago and got hooked very quick. It's my club, where I make my rants, read those of my fellow hootooers, and engage in sometimes delightful and sometimes stimulating conversations. I forgot long ago what subject I was searching for when first directed here -- how did you find yourself here?

here , where? where am I?

Its so bizaree I can feel lost without leaving my chair! (you sould know about that being so characteristically recumbent!)
Yes I write on get writing, lots. I dont rant there thghouas its more formal than here it seems.

I should really practise my indian classical shouldnt I? but it means getting a hramonium and giving up debauchery. Hmm...

Good Question. When I came here here was h2g2 but now h2g2 seems to include3 GW which for me isn't quite the same as here. But all I can call here is . . . h2g2. So where am I?
