Intervals can be thought of as musical inches.
An Interval is a measurement of the musical distance between two notes.
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
- Flat 2 (written “b2”)
A Minor Second is the distance from one note to it’s nearest neighbor.
This may be a white key or a black key.
If you are on a black key, the nearest neighbor will be a white key.
