When It Clicks

Selah, App Development, Music Theory

‪When something that you didn’t get before suddenly clicks.‬

‪I was told last year, when working on Selah Chords, that the F# Major 7 chord doesn’t have an F in it, but an E#.‬

‪Now if you, like me, blinked twice, you might also be a guitar player.‬ Sorry.

‪I was told this is because the F# scale doesn’t have an F, but an E#. Still didn’t make sense, but because the individual was smarter than me, I made a complex system to fix this and other odd notes with no understanding of why.‬

‪Fast forward to today and I’m building a scales ap— #spoilers. And I rendered the tablature for an F# major scale.‬

‪F# G# A# B C# D# F

‪Well, that looks weird having two Fs…‬

‪And so it clicked.‬ ‪And now I better understand the “why” and can build a better system to handle these enharmonic notes.
