In the least, if you understand partials, when the topic turns to partials, you will understand what people are talking about, and you stand a great chance of learning something. I believe the more info the better.

 Good!

No learning haters! I suggest that anyone (like me - and I bet there are plenty!) who doesn't get the concept to at least read through the Wikipedia links provided earlier. Bookmarked!

Not to confuse you, but in the Netherlands we learn the Helmholtz pitch notation:

The scientific pitch notation makes more sense to me.

Yes Ted, actually it is what we learn(ed) in Sweden too. It still lingers on with older musicians, the younger goes with the scientific pitch notation.

I believe in the Netherlands like in Sweden you have/hade the tone H?
A chromatic downgoing scale down from C goes C H B A Ab G Gb F E Eb D Db C. A sharpend H is H#, a flattend H i B.

Well, do you still think the nomenclature is difficult? Pant

Actually in a conference 1987 we decided that from now (1987) we say Bb and H, after 10 years from now we say Bb and B like it should be from the begining.

You know what, it is still a problem here!  :D  Embarrassed!

No, I only know the "H" because of some old German music.

We use the Letter notation. However, in Belgium it's still common to use the Solfège instead of Letters. Our Flemish conductor always get weird looks when he uses those in our wind band.

Also common in French music.  I have to constantly think what key the piece is in from the title.  Ut is C, Re is D, Mi is E, Fa is F, Sol is G, La is A, Si is B.  Also Bemol is minor.
