MYSTERY WORDS:

If you decipher the 3 mystery words throughout this course (as mentioned in the course summary) Please submit your answers via email to sales@dannyblaker.com to recieve your free digital copy of Twilight.

Minor 2nd

  • Good for Trolling
  • Only 1 semi-tone apart
  • Sounds like a mosquito
  • Compared to the tri-tone:
    • Tritone: sounds angry & jarring
    • Min 2nd: just sounds annoying.



02:16
  • Sounds very hypnotizing and zombie-like
    • If zombies had keyboards, they'd play minor 2nds
    • they're also like the Hypnotoad from Futurama
  • Major 2nds clash in a more pleasant and but eerie way - less offensive than minor 2nd
  • They give a feeling of something Frozen in time - imagine a busy city square full of people walking around, then all of a sudden time just freezes, and everything is at a stand still - like in The Matrix.
  • Paralyzing - makes you stop in your tracks
  • Think of the Maj 2nd as a Still portrait - a Spooky one.
