Irregular and stressed past participles Overview There are very few irregular past participles in Spanish, and several only require the addition of a written accent to help differentiate the syllables. Stressed Past Participle Forms If an -ER or -IR verb’s stem ends in a vowel, then the participle ending will need a tilde on the “i.” Irregular Past Participles A few verbs in Spanish have irregular forms that you will need to memorize. Many of these words can be used with prefixes and are also irregular. Some past participles have different forms depending on whether they are used as an adjective or a verb.

Untitled Document Mathematics, astronomy, geometry, geography, art, music and religion were all integrated in ancient times. Numerous surviving examples suggest that ancient Egyptian art was based on a strict canon that was followed for over 3,000 years. According to Plato, this was also true of ancient Egyptian music. Tone is based on the frequency of sound waves. The next higher octave may be calculated by doubling the frequency of each note and the next lower octave may be calculated by halving the frequency of each note. A string tuned to a base frequency of 440 waves per second (440 Hz) will also produce higher tones known as partials or harmonics. When the same note is played by two different instruments at the same time, the frequency of both notes is the same, so every wave of both notes aligns, resulting in optimal consonance. What Pythagoras described as perfect fifths and perfect fourths are notes with low integer ratios in relation to the base note, also resulting in consonant sound.
Double Bass - Upright Bass - String Bass - Bass Viol - Bass Fiddle - Electric Upright Bass - Links Page, Courtesy of Gollihur Music - Upright Bass Specialists Back in 1996, I posted a list on my website (pulled from my personal bookmarks) of double bass resources I'd found, simply to share them with other players. Over the years, I've maintained this collection - adding new resources, removing dead links when I can, and taking lots of link suggestions from the site's many visitors. Now, more than 10 years later, the list has continued to grow, and what you see below is the fruits of my labor. This list changes and grows on almost a daily basis due to new discoveries and submissions. Thanks and enjoy!

Arabic chat alphabet History During the last decades of the 20th century and especially since the 1990s, Western text communication technologies became increasingly prevalent in the Arab world, such as personal computers, the World Wide Web, email, bulletin board systems, IRC, instant messaging and mobile phone text messaging. Most of these technologies originally had the ability to communicate using Latin script only, and some of them still do not have the Arabic alphabet as an optional feature. Usage Online communications, such as IRC, bulletin board systems, and blogs, are often run on systems or over protocols which don't support codepages or alternate character sets. It is most commonly used by youth in the Arab world in very informal settings, for example communicating with friends or other youths. Even though the Arabic language is well integrated with Windows XP and Mac OS X, people still use it in Arabic forums and instant Messaging programs such as Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo!
Why the circle of fourths is so important when learning major scales | Hear and Play Music Learning Center Playing your major scales should be a part of your daily practice regimen. However, practicing them in a “circle of fourths” or “circle of fifths” pattern is even better. Let’s focus more on circle of fourths. If you type “circle of fourths” or “circle of fifths” in google, you can actually find a host of other examples. Notice that the keys go from: C >>> F >>> Bb >>> Eb and so forth. If this were a clock, C would be at 12 o’ clock. This is the optimal way to play your scales. Then play your F major scale all the way through (F G A Bb C D E F). Why the circle? Because music also happens to move in this same pattern (way beyond the scope of this article but I’ll touch on it a little bit). But here’s another reason to use the circle. Because it lets you know how related the major keys are to each other. If one just looked at a piano, they’d assume that C and Db, for example, were related because of how close they appear to each other on the piano. The reality is that C and F are more related.

Harmonic Functions - Augmented Sixths We will start by transforming the iv degree chord of the A minor key into an augmented sixth chord. Below is the i - iv - V - i progression in A minor: now, we set the iv degree chord in first inversion: by raising the root of the iv degree chord a half-step (D# in this case) we get an augmented sixth chord: The chord receives the name of Augmented Sixth chord because of the augmented sixth interval between the bass and the chromatically raised note. Very often the Augmented Sixth chord is followed by the tonic chord in 2nd inversion before resolving to the dominant chord: Arabic Numbers, Cardinal and Ordinal The table below shows examples of Arabic numbers. The first and the fifth columns have numbers used in some Arab countries; they’re not of Arabic origins but still used in many places especially copies of the Holy Qur’an …. Nowadays what we call the Arabic numbers are the numbers shown on the columns 2 and 6, which are used by the Arab world as well as the rest of the world. Forming numbers in Arabic is quite easy, from 13 to 19 you just place a number before ten for example 13 = three ten, instead of thirteen in English, 17 is seven ten in Arabic. From 21 to 99 you just need to reverse the numbers and add (wa- between the two numbers) 36 would be six wa- thirty instead of thirty six (sitta wa-thalathun), (wa means and). 0 is sifr in Arabic, from which the word cipher came. So in general, numbers standing alone are easy to use, or say. If you are looking for a more extensive Arabic course, we recommend Breaking The Arabic Code Arabic Ordinal Numbers:
Pythagorean tuning The syntonic tuning continuum, showing Pythagorean tuning at 702 cents. Diatonic scale on C Play 12-tone equal tempered and Play just intonation. Pythagorean (tonic) major chord on C Play (compare Play equal tempered and Play just). Comparison of equal-tempered (black) and Pythagorean (green) intervals showing the relationship between frequency ratio and the intervals' values, in cents. The system had been mainly attributed to Pythagoras (sixth century BC) by modern authors of music theory, while Ptolemy, and later Boethius, ascribed the division of the tetrachord by only two intervals, called "semitonium", "tonus", "tonus" in Latin (256:243 x 9:8 x 9:8), to Eratosthenes. Method Pythagorean tuning is based on a stack of intervals called perfect fifths, each tuned in the ratio 3:2, the next simplest ratio after 2:1. This succession of eleven 3:2 intervals spans across a wide range of frequency (on a piano keyboard, it encompasses 77 keys). Size of intervals (e.g. between E♭ and E)
