OH I get this now, we're getting to where we may label an exact major and minor chord in sagispeak. So Tai Major is 14:18:21 and Pao Major is 4:5:6. Cool. We can abbreviate these T and P as well though allowing for chords where we have sevenths such as 4:5:6:7 being the Pao major Tao minor being a Pt chord or Pm chord.

Correct. There's nothing acoustically salient about 64:81. I did mean 4:5.cam.taylor wrote:Perhaps I didn't fully get that comment. But what does "ordinary major third" mean here? Surely not 81:64, which it would usually in Sagittal...
Yes. Supermajor third has always meant 7:9 or an approximation thereof.If it means 5:4, then that's a "pao (major) third" by default (using Sagittal's JI logic). What does "supermajor third" mean here? Does it mean 9:7?
Maybe not. Maybe I am missing something -- not fully appreciating the value of the child I helped raise.Then that's a tai major third? So what is a "major third"? Simply the notation for 81:64, surely? Or am I missing something?
It's growing on me. I think I'm just gonna get out of the way, and see where this goes.So, back to your comment further above, "notational major" is ALWAYS simply "major" in my system. By acoustic major if you mean 64:81:96, then that's "major" again, but if you mean 4:5:6, then that's "pao (major)"...
Haha! It is quite the child! Guess we'll all have to see where it goes.Maybe not. Maybe I am missing something -- not fully appreciating the value of the child I helped raise.
