Key Signatures


We can define and classify heptatonic scales with the quality of intervals of the scale degrees in relation to its tonic. Scales dominated with major and augmented intervals tend to ascend, while scales with minor and diminished intervals tend to descend.

Key description

In music that does not use equal temperament, chords played in different keys are qualitatively different. In addition, since many composers often utilized the piano while composing, the key chosen can possibly have an effect over the composing. Besides this though, the timbre of almost any instrument is not exactly the same for all notes played on that instrument.

The Artsy Side of Skeleton Keys

I also don't think minor should be categorized as sad, but rather as emotional. It plays with your emotions, sometimes making you feel sad, other times making you feel a sense of power.

Now, the natural minor scale has more descending tendencies with its minor 3rd, 6th and 7th than the major scale with its major 3rd, 6th and 7th. Now, raised scale degrees are said to have an ascending tendency while lowered ones are said to have a descending tendency.

The 2nd, 3rd,6th are minor, and the seventh is diminished. Keys have represented various spiritual symboligies for as long as man has had locks. They are connected with gateways and portals, doorways to the unknown, knowledge, mysteries, powers, initiations, new ways, forbidden things and answers to curious questions. They are often associated with various literary idioms, specific deities or spiritual figures, and are often used as part of charms or other magical tools. Yes, there will always be some types of keys as in pass codes or other devices, but the idea of having a piece of metal cut to a specific shape, I fear is losing it’s place in the world of the future.

The key signature is not always a reliable guide to the key of a written piece. It does not discriminate between a major key and its relative minor; the piece may modulate to a different key; if the modulation is brief, it may not involve a change of key signature, being indicated instead with accidentals. Occasionally, a piece in a mode such as Mixolydian or Dorian is written with a major or minor key signature appropriate to the tonic, and accidentals throughout the piece. Many components make up happy and sad music, including differing tempos, timbres and rhythms, but major-minor tonality is a key clue from which we extract an emotional message. This on–the-spot evaluation is drawn from our reaction to the acoustic structure of major and minor chords but is mostly down to learned associations, both ancient and modern.

Minor music can be happy even if people do not understand the lyrics, such as in Van Morrison’s ‘Moondance’. Or try keeping a smile on your face when you hear to ‘Dinner At Eight’ by Rufus Wainwright or ‘I Know It’s Over’ by The Smiths, both of which are in major keys. I had a piano teacher who broke down every emotion into a mode.

What is a key in music terms?

In music theory, the key of a piece is the group of pitches, or scale, that forms the basis of a music composition in classical, Western art, and Western pop music. Notes and chords other than the tonic in a piece create varying degrees of tension, resolved when the tonic note or chord returns.

10 thoughts on “The Symbolic Meaning of Keys”

One of the most widely seen symbols in ancient Egypt is the ankh, also known as the key of life or the key of the Nile. Historically, locksmiths constructed or repaired an entire lock, including its constituent parts. The rise of cheap mass production has made this less common; the vast majority of locks are repaired through like-for-like replacements, high-security safes and strongboxes being the most common exception.

  • Full identification requires comparison of the specimen with some authoritative source, such as a full and accurate description of the species, preferably in a monograph.
  • Key West is the driest city in Florida, and most of the Florida Keys can become quite dry at the height of the dry season.
  • More elaborate pieces may establish the main key, then modulate to another key, or a series of keys, then back to the original key.
  • In the last lesson, we discussed that the W W H W W W H step pattern is the same for all major keys.
  • Happy and brooding probably aren't mutually exclusive.

What are the 12 keys?

12 Possible Keys in Music There are 12 possible keys any particular song can be played in. This is because of the 12 notes on the piano keyboard, A, A#/Bb, B, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, and G#/Ab. A song can be played so that any one of these twelve notes will be the tonal center or home base.

At the nearest point, the southern part of Key West is just 90 miles (140 km) from Cuba. The Florida Keys are between about 24.3 and 25.5 degrees North latitude. As we mentioned before,most songs will end on the tonic. It would be safe to bet that the song is in C Major, but let’s confirm by looking at the chorus and seeing if how often a “C” shows up.

Key West is the driest city in Florida, and most of the Florida Keys can become quite dry at the height of the dry season. Some of the more exposed vegetation in the keys is scrub, stunted due to the intense sun, quick draining sandy soil, and arid winter climate. The Keys are also home to unique animal species, including the American crocodile, Key deer, protected by the National Key Deer Refuge, and the Key Largo woodrat. The Keys is the northernmost range of the American crocodile, which is endemic from South America to Panama, north to the Florida Keys. The Key Largo Woodrat is found only in the northern part of its namesake island, and is a focus of management activities in Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

Key duplication is available in many retail hardware stores and as a service of the specialized locksmith, though the correct key blank may not be available. More recently, online services for duplicating keys have become available. Although the fitting and replacement of keys remains an important part of locksmithing, modern locksmiths are primarily involved in the installation of high quality lock-sets and the design, implementation, and management of keying and key control systems. A smart lock is an electromechanics lock that gets instructions to lock and unlock the door from an authorized device using a cryptographic key and wireless protocol.

What are the 2 types of dichotomous keys?

Types. There are two types of dichotomous keys. They differ in the method by which the couplets are organized and how the user is directed to successive choices. Indented Keys (also called yoked) - indents the choices (leads) of the couplet an equal distance from the left margin.

Now if i wanted to do this in the key of "A", the notes in that scale are A,B,C#,D,E,F#,G#. The identification obtained from a key should be viewed as only a suggestion of the species's real identity. Full identification requires comparison of the specimen with some authoritative source, such as a full and accurate description of the species, preferably in a monograph.

A warded lock uses a set of obstructions, or wards, to prevent the lock from opening unless the correct key is inserted. The key has notches or slots that correspond to the obstructions in the lock, allowing it to rotate freely inside the lock.

Key description

Warded locks are typically reserved for low-security applications as a well-designed skeleton key can successfully open a wide variety of warded locks. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century and the concomitant development of precision engineering and component standardization, locks and keys were manufactured with increasing complexity and sophistication.

How do you know if a song is in major or minor?

If there are 3 sharps in a key signature (F, C, G) look at the last sharp (G) and go up one semitone (A). So 3 sharps is the key of A Major.

Even cadences that do not include the tonic note or triad, such as half cadences and deceptive cadences, serve to establish key because those chord sequences imply a unique diatonic context. You’re probably pretty confident at this point that the tonic is indeed “C.” We can now conclude that the song is in C Major, rather than A Minor. Let’s use the popular Beatles tune “Let it Be,” to dissect this method. We know from our key signature of no sharps or flats that the song is either in C Major or A Minor.

Why are the keys called keys?

De León named the islands Los Martires ("The Martyrs"), as they looked like suffering men from a distance. "Key" is derived from the Spanish word cayo, meaning small island. For many years, Key West was the largest town in Florida, and it grew prosperous on wrecking revenues.

Is D Minor Really the Saddest of All Keys?

A simple minor chord (with three notes, also known as a ‘triad’) also uses a middle note that is closer to the tonic as compared to a major triad. Take for example the C triad chord (C, E, and G); in the minor version the middle note is E flat (closer to C) whereas in the major version we hear natural E (further away from C). The tonic (C) is the strongest note and draws more of our attention, so minor chords like this trigger more sensory dissonance, a kind of tension that stems from the clashing of closely spaced frequencies. To write something sad sounding you would use the minor mode.

Key description

Humming the tonic note while the song plays will sound pretty good throughout the whole piece. You can also observe that in many styles of music, "minor" keys are used to compose joyful and upbeat music. There are a number of examples already cited, I'll add Irish traditional dance music, which has both melancholy airs in major keys and perky reels and jigs in minor keys.
