Me: *dials 234-WXYZ* Good afternoon. Can I have the direct line to your eye specialist?
Operator: Yes, ma’am. The number is 234-WXYZ.
I’ve been trolled by a clinic’s phone operator. :|
I was calling about an operation.
I did not find this funny at all.
TIL most songs’ chords will be 0-2 major/minor steps away from each other if you arrange the chords in a circle of fifths. this discounts any decorations the chord might have—augmented, 5ths, 7ths, suspended. but still… wow.
i’m well aware of the circle of fifths but i’ve never used it this way before.
and i knew the basic I-IV-V combination (and variations thereof). but once i related the I, IV, and V to their relative minors (ii,vi, and vii respectively) i actually saw that the chords will move only 0-2 steps away from each other.
unless we’re talking about jazz. which is… jazz. it’s a different animal.
(i would like to illustrate some more but i’m currently too excited to be coherent.)
