    Heya, fellas, howz thangs; for the purposes of discussion, say, what do you guys think about tuning to A 432 Hz? Says Wikipedia, 432 Hz resonates with 8 Hz (the Schumann Resonance), the documented fundamental electromagnetic โ€œbeatโ€ of Earth. It just feels better. Research says that music tuned from this frequency is easier to listen to, brighter, clearer, and contains more inherent dynamic range.

    Hmmmmm ..

    Have youse even seen some of the crazee wild stuff on the net about this A 432 Hz thang??!
    Pray tell?

    So. Anywayz! Check out this song by Anton just posted on FB ~

    He’s good! Ya! Real good. Fifth position. “Taking a closer look at the circle of fifths reveals that the fifth position is the one which precedes the key of the song by four positions, while scrolling the circle counterclockwise. For example: if we take a C harmonica, we can play in fifth position on a E tune.”

    From the diagram if he is playing a Eb harp then the song key is G. Ya?
    That’s A for us tenor players.
    A blues scale, A C D Eb E G A.

    I’ve been jamming along. Like, tartin’ it up lol. Does it fit, or not? It doesn’t? What do you reckon then?

    ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah, so here’s the link on Chordify ~ [N.B. SAYS that, “This song has non-standard frequency tuning, you might enjoy jamming better if your instrument is tuned to 431Hz.”]

    [Thanx heaps, Anton, well played, and, certainly inspirational stuff well worth sharing in any event! Cheers!]
