Entry: Why C#= C Sharp? 3/18/2005



Ever wondered why C# is pronounced C-Sharp and not C-Hash or C-Pound?.. Well if you already play Guitar or ever composed  a ringtone for your cell phone you already know what that means...In Guitar for chords based on a chromatic root note (Bb, F# etc), the chords are always listed under the equivalent sharp note. This means that Bb chords are listed as A# and Db as C# and so on...

Flat note Equivalent sharp note
---------- --------------------------
Bb          A#
Db          C#
Eb          D#
Gb          F#
Ab          G#


So now you know how to play (with) C#;)
