Charlie McDonnell - Fun Science Sound Chords

C0                 G1          D#2                F3
0It starts with an idea or an impulse to make a sound,
           C4                 G5                   D#6               F7
1And then a message gets sent to my head where my vocal chords are found.

       A#8                     F9              C10
4And they vibrate, and cause the air to vibrate too.
         A#11                     F12                    G13
5Then the air gets shot out of my mouth on its way to you!

C14              G15              D#16           F17
8This vibration I've just made travels as a wave,
       C18          G19                         D#20                F21
9But if I vibrated differently then it would cause the wave to change.
10
11
          A#22           F23                     C24
12If I sing low then the frequency of the wave drops.
          A#25            F26
13If I sing high then the frequency is high too.
                                        G27
14And if I sing loud then my micro-phone pops!
15
16
    C28                  G29               D#30               F31
17The sound wave travels through the air unless it hits a wall
         C32              G33                       D#34                F35
18Then the higher frequencies get absorbed and the deeper ones pass through
19
20
               A#36                F37                   C38
21And that's why when I'm behind a window I sound like this.
           A#39              F40                                       G41
22And if the wall is hard the sound bounces back and you can hear an echo!
23
24
             C42              G43               D#44              F45
25The sound is captured by my micro-phone and sorted digitally,
           C46                 G47                  D#48                    F49
26That was until you play this video and now your speakers are mimicking me
27
28
            A#50                  F51               C52
29And now the waves are back and going into your ear.
            A#53                                       G54
30Only 6 more steps inside your head until you get to hear!
31
32
C55        G56          A#57
33Sound is touch at a distance,
F58                  C59         G60              A#61         F62
34When they say that music can touch you, it literally does.
35
36
C63        G64        A#65
37Sound is a vi-ber-ation,
    F66                C67       G68                    A#69
38But thanks to modern science we can know that it's shaking our eardrums:
39
40
A#70
41And the drum then shakes some tiny bones
C71
42And the bones send vibrations to a liquid
A#72
43And the waves in the liquid bend some hairs
C73
44And the hairs send a signal to the brain
A#74                                            C75                 G76
45And it's only when it forms a pattern in your head that you can hear!
