Posting a new thread because we have a lovely thread about learning instruments, and it doesn't need my moaning. SO... RUBS HANDS... I'm already annoyed with old school notation vs the reality of the atonal scale. Atonal notes are a fixed 'width'. There's no fundamental C. Or G. Or anything. There's no anchor. You could call one note "Dave You Twat" and the other "Nigel You Other Twat". It would make no difference. Every note is just a set distance. There's no GMT, no singular point. Why is the move from 1-2 ok, but the move from 4-5 needing a weird adjuster? I can only think this stems from saving paper printing scores. Conventional scores will be more compact. Is that the reason we don't have scores that make an atonal gridline?
