In this lesson, you will hear perfect 5ths played upward, then write them in music notation.
Again, here are some examples of ascending perfect 5ths.
|Perfect 5th – Up|
As we learned before both notes will usually have the same accidental.
That is both will be sharp, both will be flat, or both will be natural.
The one exception is from B to F because this is a diminished 5th.
That means if the lower note is B, the upper note will be F#.
Or, if the lower note is Bb, the upper note will be F.
Fifths are very easy to write in music notation.
If the lower note is on a space, the upper note will always be two spaces above.
If the lower note is on a line, the upper note will always be two lines above.
