kyo music scale

I would like to introduce you a completely new music scale which is
based on 9 helts, and it fits with human brain wave. Please check the
website and listen it. You will find it amazing. I would like to expand
this music to many people. I would like to introduce this conposor.

I recently was introduced to a new form of music that is being
developed by a talented artist named John K. who lives in Japan. This
music is a fusion of a variety of different styles. It has sort of a
jazzy feeling to it as it shifts in and out of what I interpret as
different minor keys. It has an Asian sound to it with unexpected
note intervals and unusual tone combinations, and often has an
underlying western beat.
What makes this music most unique is the scale that it is based on.
John has invented a new musical scale called the Kyo music scale that
he bases his compositions on. A new scale system isnft something that
someone comes up with very often. Basically all of the music that we
in the western world are familiar with is based on the
equally-tempered scale where the note eAf is at 440 Hertz, and all
other notes are a multiple of the square root of 12 above and below
that. Our musical scale is one of those centuries-old rock-solid
standards that we base our interpretation of music on. Probably the
only time that most of us are exposed to any music that is different
from gDo-Re-Mih is when we are in an Oriental restaurant listening to
the background music (secretly wishing that theyfd tune up their
instruments).
The Kyo music scale is based on a 9 Hertz factor of spacing between
the notes. The scale wefre used to has seven whole notes, A through
G, in an octave, while the Kyo scale has eight notes, K through R, in
an octave. The reason the 9 Hertz multiple was chosen is that is that
it is a known fact that the brainfs alpha waves run at this frequency
when a person is in a relaxed state. The idea is that listening to
music that resonates at this frequency will help put you in a relaxed
state.
The initial studies that have been done on the Kyo music scale
confirm that listening to it significantly enhances alpha wave
activity in the brain. In the trial, a monitor was started on a
subject in a normal, somewhat stressed, state with high beta wave
brain activity. After listening to one Kyo scale selection, the beta
wave activity was reduced substantially, while the alpha wave activity
greatly increased. Though the study may not be conclusive, the proof
to me is that I find the music to be quite relaxing and enjoyable.
What I find interesting about this music is that upon the first time
of listening to it, some parts seem to be off-key. This is a natural
reaction, because gDo, Re, and Mih donft have the same meaning any
more in this music. Also, John includes a note on the jacket of some
of his CDfs that if you are stressed, the music will sound strange.
Upon subsequent replays, I notice that the music is, in fact, very
much in harmony. The fascinating about this is that if I apply my own
set of rules to this music, I find things wrong with it. If I am a
little more open-minded, and try to appreciate this music for what it
is, then I start finding the harmony and beauty in it.
Johnfs third CD gSeascapeh was just released in August 2002. The
other two CDs gWinter Collectionh came out in February 2002, followed
by gInto Springh. Like many artists who are trying to get exposure to
their work, he uses technology to produce and publish his own
recordings. His works are promoted and sold on his website at
http://www.john-k.com.
To hear for yourself what I am talking about, please follow the link
above to John Kfs website. You will find links there to hear some of
his works at mp3.com. I will be happy to answer any questions that I
can, and would be pleased to hear if you decide to do a story on John
K. You may also contact him directly at scale_kyo@lycos.com.

Desktop guitarist

it's a must for all beginner's and alike. very good tool.

A must have program for any guitarist

Simple, easy to use, fully cool... incredible teaching tool and learning tool. I use it to work out thoughts and tab for others. Don't waste your time or money on cheap, highly graphical, resource intensive programs... spend the cash and order a copy from Marty, before he decides to stop putting out functional software at low prices. I paid and got a letter of thanks with the disc... he also emailed me the program to me immediately, so I could use it before the disc came. Thanks Marty! I use to waste tons of paper trying to get fingerstyle parts down... not to mention the task of knowing where and what will sound good... The only drawback is that you can't sustain notes over new notes, nor bend them... but for the tiny size of the program & its enormous capabilities... so what! Just fake 'em with jazzy 64th notes.

Question

How can I play a music with more then seven position on the guitar? A example if you not understand me...(becouse my bad english).

--2---5---"7"---

It's jammin'

Desktop Guitarist is definately hip to the square!!!! It'll let you play that funky jive, or write your own!!!

Desktop Guitarist

The program is fully functional and has 5 frets to work with, adequate for a lot of people. If you need 18-frets, I'll be glad to sell you the registered version!

Re: Desktop Guitarist

The 18 fret version is not enough!
There should be at least 24 frets.
I would also like to see the ability to add more strings as well, up to 12 strings would suffice.
These mods should be just a simple change, if proper use of software constants has been used in the software.
Thank you.

A?

I was very excited about this software and downloaded it thinking that it would be a great help in creating tablatures automatically which I actually do by hand. However, I was quite disappointed to discover that the scale range that the "guitar" can play here is limited to A of the 6th string (standard tuning-EADGBE)

Reply: pay the money, cheapskate and buy the program! What do you expect, a FREE LUNCH?!
