Ive been meaning to ask this for a while, but just havent thought of a formal way to ask it How did music start? how did people discover that there are 7 whole notes in the music language? i know that cavmen started rythmic tunes by hitting on stones, but what about strings, woodwind, and piano? when did instruments start interacting with one and other, and how did people discover that certain notes fit in certain scales? This has plagued my mind for a while Does anyone get my drift, or am i just making a fool outta myself?
