I have a question about singing solfege in the fixed-do system. I've written a long post to show where I am coming from, so if you want to jump to just the question please scroll down I have been singing major scales in the fixed do system. Some examples (please feel free to jump in and correct these if you think they are "wrong" or could be sung better): C Major - Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do G Major - So La Ti Do Re Mi Fi So D Major - Re Mi Fi So La Ti Di Re F Major - Fa So La Te Do Re Mi Fa Bb Major - Te Do Re Me Fa So La Te All scales have been fine so far, but there is one that I am uncertain of, namely F#/Gb Major. If I sing it as Gb, its no problem: Se Le Te De Ra Me Fa Se I am not entirely sure that "De" exists as an established syllable, but it made sense to sing it that way, following the pattern of B (Ti) --> Bb (Te) E (Mi) --> Eb (Me) A (La) --> Ab (Le) ... C (Do) --> Cb (De) The problem is singing this scale as an F# scale, ie using "Fa" as the starting syllable: Fa Si Li Ti Di Ri |?| Fa The sharps are usually created like Do --> Di, Re --> Ri, Fa --> Fi. So what would you sing for those two syllables that already end in "i", Mi and Ti? TO REPHRASE, AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO SCROLLED DOWN, THE ACTUAL QUESTION IS: How does one sing E# and B# in the fixed solfege system? I'll rephrase if this whole post sounds convoluted. I'm new to solfege, and did a lot of online research, but couldn't come up with these two "missing syllables".
