Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In classical music from Western culture, a diminished sixth (About this sound Play (help info)) is an interval produced by narrowing a minor sixth by a chromatic semitone. For example, the interval from A to F is a minor sixth, eight semitones wide, and both the intervals from A to F, and from A to F are diminished sixths, spanning seven semitones. Being diminished, it is considered a dissonant interval. Its inversion is the augmented third, and its enharmonic equivalent is the perfect fifth.show more
