So, like, a while ago I was discussing music with someone, and how it’s put together, and, you know, like notes and chords and stuff. (“Music” here refers to the Western music system as described in the English language.)
Then, later, in a totally separate conversation, I was pondering starting up a new blog. My companion said, “Hey, why don’t you start a blog about this music stuff we’ve been talking about. I’ll bet there are lots of people out there who play some musical instrument (or would like to) and are confused about notes and chords and stuff.”
Musicology is a gigantic field of study, but what if you just want to understand how music is constructed without all the complicated details? Then you need the streamlined diet version: Musicology Lite.
So here it is. Enjoy.
