I just have a question;
What does this symbol mean:
Does it have the same meaning as this one?:
Or maybe as this symbol :
I can’t find the answer so maybe you could help me out..
That’s not a bad question. Maybe I’ll do a video explaining it also.
It’s something you will usually learn about with a beginning book or a first year class.
Each symbol can shift the pitch by a half step.
The first means ‘natural’.
If there is no marking, you just see a note, the default thing it will be is ‘natural’.
The reason you see a natural sign is if you are meant to play the note natural but there is either a flat or a sharp in the key signature or as an accidental.
The next symbol is ‘flat’. You shift the pitch of the note down by a half step.
The third is ‘sharp’. You shift the pitch of the note up by a half step.
There are double flats and double sharps, but are less common.
Often times you can play the same pitch but see it written two different ways.
D# is a half step above D (and a half step below E) and Eb is a half step below E (and a half step above D). They sound the same.
B and C are a half step apart. So Cb sounds the same as B.
If you look at the keys on a piano, this may make more sense.
You can also check out my class ‘Saxophone Foundations‘ if you want to read through more on this and about other parts of notation, theory, etc.
