I take it that you don't consider math to be a strong point. I'm happy that you're interested in learning, though!>logs
I'll refer you here.https://youtu.be/sULa9Lc4pck>ratio
Usually a fraction. Frequency of one thing divided by frequency of the reference. Or multiply a frequency by a fraction to get a new frequency. Ratio of money of your compared to Trump = (your money)/(Trump's money). >Pythagorean comma
The Pythagorean comma is the issue that 12 justly intoned perfect fifths, (3/2)^12, does not equal any number of octaves, but it gets very close to 2^7. The resolution is to approximate 3/2 ~= 2^(7/12). Thus, on the usual guitar, any two frets that are 7 semitones away make an interval that is a perfect fifth, but it is also an approximation to 3/2. >You lost me.
In short, as a result of the approximation, 12 tone equal temperament is made. 12 ET is also known as 12edo, or 12 Equal Division of the Octave. >reduce
By reduce, I mean Octave Equivalence, or in other words, divide or multiply by 2. So, using the approximation to the interval 3/2, that is, 2^(7/12), I take (2^(7/12))^n, for n being a whole number. I then divide by 2 in order to octave reduce it.>>9565695
Thanks. If anyone has any music theory questions, ask away. I'll try my best.
