How many intervals in a harmonic minor scale, djeggnog?
Now write it out in terms of whole-steps (W) and half-steps (H). (For example, like this: Major scales consists of 7 intervals in the pattern of W-W-H-W-W-W-H)
We'd have U, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8ve, where "U" = "Unison" and "ve" = "Octave," but more specifically, using your notation for the Natural A Minor Scale, we'd have:
A - B - C - D - E - F - G - A
W- H - W - W - H - W - W
But using this same notation for the Harmonic A Minor Scale, but using "WA" to indicate an augmented whole interval, we'd have:
A - B - C - D - E - F - Ab - A
W - H - W - W - H - WA - H
If you do in fact give the correct answer, I am curious as to how your answer will compare to the error you made when you previously stated to me....
I don't suppose you need me for this, so....
In this case, how true will you be to your own words when you essentially have said in the past that you, as a JW, are honest enough to admit when you are wrong?
I'm going to have to pass on responding to this question. Your thread indicated that you would be asking me a "non-religious question."
Will you be able to admit it here, the one of many errors you have avoided?
I don't understand this question, but with respect to the entirety of what I wrote in a different thread:
With respect to the melodic major and minor "triads," it is always the third note in the minor triad that is flatted, so to speak, which is why, as I stated above, I had to have been exhausted to have completely ignored the fact that there are 12 intervals (half-steps) in a musical scale when I wrote what I did about the harmonic F#-minor chord's fourth interval being a Eb (D#), when the fourth interval will always be a C# (Db), when this note will always be five half-steps away from the root note. While a minor chord will always be three half-steps away from the root note, a major chord will always be four half-steps away from the root note.
-- I'm satisfied that I erred when I wrote "12 intervals in a musical scale," for I should have written "12 basic intervals on the piano keyboard," since this is what I had in mind at the time I was writing that post.
I hope these responses prove to be helpful in some way to you.
I realize you didn't know that I play alto sax (Eb), trombone (Bb) and keyboards (organ and synthesizer). A little background: I'm a former pre-Disco era R&B musician, who, along with a tenor saxophonist, that also played the soprano sax and the flute; an alto saxophonist; and a trumpeter -- we four -- were the brass section of a nine-man band with a three-man (actually a one-man and two-woman) singing group that would sing for one of our 40-minute sets as part of our ensemble.

I highlighted the above to show yet another one of many errors of his as regards. It is in reference to one of the members of the ‘brass’ section of the group-- someone who plays flute, tenor sax, and soprano sax (considered woodwind instruments, not brass instruments). Contrary to what he has stated, this person would NOT be considered part of ‘the brass’ section. Although those three instruments are made out of metal, they are part of the ‘woodwind’ section, but I have heard them sometimes referred to generically as part of a ‘horn’ section in a general sense – Regardless, never are they considered a member of a ‘brass’ section.
This may be difficult for you to accept, but the guy that played the tenor sax, the guy that played the alto sax, the guy that played the trumpet and me, the guy that played the trombone -- we four -- were called "the brass section." You want to criticize us for not referring to ourselves as "the woodwind section," and I'm ok with your doing this. However, I've told you what the four of us were called, how we were referred to when justaposed against what was called "the rhythm section" (electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and keyboards), for even when the guy on tenor sax switched to play the soprano sax or the flute, or when the tenor sax guy was forced to play the drums when the drummer had to use the bathroom, or when I switched to play the alto sax or keyboards(!), we continued to be "the brass section."
