Thread Name: HELP: Definition of a harmony?
Subject: RE: HELP: Definition of a harmony?
Also worth noting that harmony has its basis in the mathematics of music, in the ratios of the frequencies of the different notes. The interval of a fifth has a ratio of 3:2 (in perfect tuning - in modern even tempered tuning it is VERY slightly less). (This was first established by Pythagoras)
