Double play grin

Ok, if you’re joking that’s cool, though I don’t get it.

If you’re being serious and you don’t get the humor, maybe best to restrain the impulse to suggest I’m writing nonsense because I’m high on something ‘cause it’s insulting and annoying.

So, if I'm joking it's ok.

If I'm not joking then I don't understand humour.

What do you think? Was I joking?

Hello Bruce, The School of Scales and Double Notes for the Pianoforte by M. Moszkowski (1907) calls these exercises in double notes. Available at:

https://imslp.org/wiki/Studies_in_Double_Notes,_Op.64_(Moszkowski,_Moritz)

The Manual of Scales and Broken Chords and Arpeggios for Piano (ABRSM 2018) refers to these scales as double thirds, double sixths, double octaves.

I have only been taking piano for 5 years and besides listening to the Great Courses by Robert Greenberg, I do not know much about music history. However I think the difference in what the scales are called could be related to the periods of time. The more modern name being double thirds, which is my teachers reference to these scales.

Really never thought about this before and reading this thread I was thinking I seen these scales with two names. After listening to numerous Greenberg lessons, it is interesting how music has developed through history.

Just food for thought, I always appreciate your insight.
