On the one hand, it may be a microtonal affair of a quarter-tone or so. Here one may speak of neutral intervals, neither major nor minor. On the other hand, the lowering may be by a full semitone—as it must be, of course, on keyboard instruments. It may involve a glide , either upward or downward.
Again, this may be a microtonal, almost imperceptible affair, or it may be a slur between notes a semitone apart, so that there is actually not one blue note but two. A blue note may even be marked by a microtonal shake of a kind common in Oriental music. The degrees of the mode treated in this way are, in order of frequency, the third, seventh, fifth, and sixth.
The blue notes are usually said to be the lowered third , lowered fifth , and lowered seventh scale degrees. In the case of the lowered third over the root or the lowered seventh over the dominant , the resulting chord is a neutral mixed third chord. Blue notes are used in many blues songs, in jazz, and in conventional popular songs with a "blue" feeling, such as Harold Arlen 's " Stormy Weather ". Blue notes are also prevalent in English folk music. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
