The diatonic scales explained. After introducing Chrominicism in the first and second clips, this third clip in the "Harmony Basics" series, explains the origin and structure of diatonic scales while also demonstrating how scales are really permutations of the natural string of fifths, that semi-tones in diatonic scales result from Chrominicism, and that Chrominicism is a fundamental music and harmony component. This also explains why diatonic scales are not uniform, why they have 5 tones and 2 semi-tones, why all steps are not equal, why are there missing black keys on the piano keyboard, as well as why keys and staff follow the string of fifths. If scales are not fundamental components but only accessory permutations, what are the foundations of music and harmony? This clip addresses and resolves these questions in just 90 seconds. More clips will build on this and resolve more major music mysteries, like they have never been before.
