    It rained hard finally

    and the frogs came out finally

    and I'm sitting here in a frog soundscape

    So I listened and quickly noticed, there was organization going on
    and different frogs sing different intervals.

    In the key of B I hear the root, major 3rd, p5th and a major 6th

    a harmony, not really dissonant

    Don't worry... my Sonicare is a C, dead on.


    Oh... I am jealous 'cause all I hear are snow plows.

    A surprising amount of things are in Bb....car horns, static electricity, and even the earth resonates in Bb....

    If they can't transpose the chrip to Eb, they're not "real" frogs

    An electric fan my parents used to own droned the exact bass note pitch and timbre in the Rolling Stones "Hang Fire". It's in the verse melody - the note at about 18 seconds into the tune.

    Or the frogs and crickets at night being a regular symphony. Check out "The Music Lesson" by Victor Wooten, a great read and also a great audio book. Discusses just this topic.

    Well get out your guitar and start jamming! Don't forget to record it, either.

    but they are chirping too many notes and I don't like their stage attire.

    Here in PA we have little tree fogs come out in the spring called peepers. You can tune to them, they are in G.

    Now you know you playing swamp music when your tuned up to the frogs.

    B major? Not a very bluesy pond.

    If you ever manage to find a place to listen to a U.S. dial tone, it's an Fmaj dyad (F+A).
