Distance between two musical notes in western music
There are seven modes in Western music, each of them with a unique name, series of whole and half steps, and a major or minor quality.
The distance between two notes is called an interval. They can be measured horizontally or vertically. They differentiate, as horizontally are played one after the other while vertically is simultaneous. There are twelve semitones in an octave.
