Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Instructor Pete Pidgeon teaches about Unisons. This is a term used in music theory that refers to two notes of the same frequency that are played at the same time.

Video Transcript: PETE PIDGEON: "The first interval we're going to discuss is a unison. Now, we saw a unison earlier when we were talking about the fact that you can replace playing the fifth fret on one string with playing it as the open string below it, because this note would be an A, E, F, F sharp, G, G sharp, A. This next string is the A string. Now, if you play those two notes together. This A on this string and this A on this string, they're the same frequency. So, if you played those two notes together you have what's called a unison interval. Essentially an interval of zero where you've got two notes of the same frequency being played at exactly the same time. Now, the other intervals that we're going to talk about involve adding different notes after the first note is struck."

Pidgeon will begin by explaining what music intervals are and their relation to the neck of the guitar. He'll then begin explaining how to find and create various intervals using the neck of the guitar. Pidgeon will explain the minor second and major second intervals, the difference between perfect and diminished notes, as well as what octaves are and how to locate them.
