  • I manage a dozen people selling fresh produce in a small college town in Texas.
    I was working for the same company when I joined the U.S. Coast Guard -
    the same company I have since been working for for over three dozen years:
    H-E-B Food and Drugs, Inc.
    It is currently a privately held company with over $20 Billion U.S. in sales each year.
    While it pours most of its profits into growth, after investing in customers and employees and community, actual profit is close to one penny on a dollar.
    Keep your personal floatation device (P-F-D) handy. "Click it or ticket!"

    I am fascinated and beyond my depth at how "The Circle of Fourths" is a retrograde of "The Circle of Fifths" LOL! Well-tempered, I'm sure! LOL!! - Daniel!!!!!

    Image from Wikipedia
    Pitches within the chromatic scale are related not only by the number of semitones between them within the chromatic scale, but also related harmonically within the circle of fifths. Reversing the direction of the circle of fifths gives the circle of fourths. Typically the "circle of fifths" is used in the analysis of classical music, whereas the "circle of fourths" is used in the analysis of Jazz music, but this distinction is not exclusive. Since fifths and fourths are intervals composed respectively of 7 and 5 semitones, the circumference of a circle of fifths is an interval as large as 7 octaves (84 semitones), while the circumference of a circle of fourths equals only 5 octaves (60 semitones).
