It's now been too long a distance from my piano lessons to
remember just how that dang si-do interval is handled on the
piano if there is more than one octave of scales being played.
Nevertheless, the fingering will demonstrate intervals in that they
are not simply the `next finger' to come along. For emotional
types (such as me), this is a helpful way to `see' something in a
new way to help make it more understandable.

When we look closely to whatever it is we want to a ccomplish,
most of the time we see do-re-mi, do-re-mi, do-re-mi, and a lot of
unfinished business. One of the reasons for this is that we don't
have the energy to bridge intervals because we got so excited and
talked too much about our plans with friends. yakityyakityyak --there goes the energy we could have used to get through an
interval if we hadn't pooped it out over coffee with friends!

Look in closets and old storage sheds. Full of do-re-mi stuff! Little
piles and boxes and shelves with do-re-mi stuff all over the place! (G)
Try it sometime---and it will be apparent quickly. Make a small
aim (has to be really something you want to accomplish or peform),
and shut up. (G) Chances are it will go well---unless it's not very
important to you and you get the `so what' sense about mi -1/2. (G)
Maybe even try it on a piano. As high as one goes, to the very
last (plink), there are only two intervals to an octave, the big one at
mi-fa and the smaller one at si-do. Intevals don't increase in
frequency of appearance---they might increase in frequency of
vibrations, though! (G)
There. Are we all confused now? (G)
