Minor 2nds – Guitar

Intervals

In level 2 you will learn about intervals.

An Interval is a measurement of the musical distance between two notes.

Intervals can be thought of as musical inches.

A Minor 2nd is the smallest interval in our musical system.

It is the distance from one note to the nearest neighboring note.

Minor 2nds also go by the following names:

  • Half Step
  • Semitone
  • Flat 2 (written “b2”)

On the guitar, a Minor 2nd is the distance from one fret to the next fret.

If the next fret goes outside the current position, the note will wrap around to the next string.
