after entering school, and that is truly surprising. For your better understanding,
Full-Harmony means that you can learn and enjoy sophisticated High,
Medium and Low pitch of sound in well balanced order.
It does not mean the selected high-medium-low pitch of sound from Guitar, Mandolin,
Ukulele, Flute, Piano etc. It means the fundamental group of musical interval.
