I thought music harmony was base 12 mathematics at first, and then I had WILLOUGHBY'S DREAM (base 24 mathematics) & WILLOUGHBY'S HARMONIC CLOCK (base 48 mathematics) all of the NOTES of all of the CHORDS of all of the KEY and octaves OCTAVE of WESTERN MUSIC
Across the top of the CHORDTEACHER is the printed replica of a 6-stringed guitar fret board, comprising of 6 horizontal color-coded lines representing the 6 strings of a guitar, and vertical lines representing the frets. Each fret is numbered 1-19. All of the chromatic scale notes, the natural notes, sharps & flats and the Willoughby scale notes are color-coded and labeled at the intersections of the strings and frets. Across the bottom of the CHORDTEACHER is the printed replica of a piano-type musical keyboard with all of the chromatic notes color-coded and labeled. Above each piano key is printed the corresponding note of the “Willoughby Scale” of my invention.
The Willoughby Scale adds additional note names to the Chromatic Note names as follows by renaming each note with the last 12 letters of the alphabet, O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z. Traditionally these notes are called natural notes, sharps and flats,
O = B , Cb , C flat , 1/2 step , P = C, B# , B sharp , 1/2 step , Q = C# , C sharp / Db , D flat , 1/2 step , R = D , 1/2 step , S = D# , D sharp / Eb , E flat , 1/2 step , T = E , Fb , F flat , 1/2 step , U = F , E# , E sharp , 1/2 step , V = F# , F sharp / Gb , G flat , 1/2 step , W = G , 1/2 step , X = G# , G sharp / Ab , A flat , 1/2 step , Y = A , 1/2 step , Z = A# , A sharp / Bb, B flat , 1/2 step , and back to the beginning
: In conclusion, it can be stated that my inventions, as described herein, present new and useful ways to explore and practically apply the scientific relationships between music, harmony and mathematics. The Willoughby Scale eliminates the confusion generated by the old-school traditional use of sharps and flats in the chromatic scale by renaming each note with the last 12 letters of the alphabet.
