Re: Minor third

I believe that the notes of "Johnny is a ba-by" are
G4 G4 E4 A4 G4 E4, i.e.,  the same as those of the
Swiss "Fang mi doch, du alte Schtock" (Catch me,
you old stick). Possibly the children in ancient Greece
used the same notes. They belong to a Dorian diatonic
tetrachord (A4 G4 F4 E4).

(Actually, my answer above refers to an earlier "Minor third"
posting that I have lost. R.F.).
