G'day all.

Quoting Ledocq-Boccart <address@hidden>:

That should be why - as far as I know - "Des Ees Fes ... Bes *Ceses*"
should be the correct writting of the Des major scale.

(...rather theoratical, is not it?)

No, it's far from theoretical.

For a start, using cisis specifies the correct intent, since d is not a
note in the dis scale.

Secondly, cisis is not even the same note as d.  Or, more correctly,
this is only true in the well-tempered scale.  On a fretless stringed
instrument, for example, cisis is played closer to dis than d would be.

This is also true of other enharmonic spellings such as aes and gis.
They are played as different notes on a violin.
