And what key was it?

The key of Q.

Not likely, Q has 17 flats

No no no. Q can be - and is - anything, and everything. Q.

In short, it is the key of Whatever. At the moment I am bereft of instruments, and I don't intuit these things without them, so Q it is. Were my life to depend upon it, off the top of my head I would venture that the key would be some iteration of E. The classically trained would be better equipped to nail it down.

For that matter, we haven't even established whether "egad" is supposed to be a progression or a chord. It might make a difference.

Could be wrong, but don't think so ...

It's normally Willscum, as far as I know ...

Just checked Wiki, and you're right. This time I was close, though. :thumbsup:

Along the same lines, I've always rather liked the names of the male and females dance troupes, the "Featherstonehaughs" and the "Cholmondeleys". Sadly, they've lost their folmonding.

I would never in a million years have guessed "Fan-shaw". "Chumley" I already knew.

I had to look them up to get that "folmonding" was to be pronounced "funding". :lol:

Pinned by stern Britannia's gimlet eye, we stand no chance.

Surely a tuning?

Romulan, perhaps.

Q

Took me a while, but I only just now realized that both posts were links.

Yes, the key of Q is very much of the multidimensional and/or infinitely potential order Ben had in mind. As to the other, I am as yet unaware of music theory having made any inroads into Queer Theory, or vice-versa. The fictional Q would probably claim the samely-named key for his own, so I'm not even going to bother saying otherwise. But I did anyway, didn't I. So there.

Q would probably appreciate that in its puny little way.

I first picked up the idea of "the key of Q" from a bandmate long ago; he used it mainly in reference to that set of keys which are outside the common norms of Trad (C#m, for example), but also to indicate any unspecified key in the hypothetical. I assumed he chose the letter Q not only because it is super-cryptic; it is also arresting, comical, and meaningless as well as easy to say and hear. Let's face it, X is pretty tired by now. For me the phrase was intuitive and stood up on its own, so it never occurred to me that he might have actually taken his inspiration from Star Trek. It's occurred to me now, though. And that's weird.

Folk round here refer to it as Wivey (rhymes with ivy) or Wivvy (doesnt rhyme with ivy),

I think if you tried to tune a guitar string to Q, it would break.

Late to the party. My apologies.

Not wishing to let the Brits have all the fun bashing foriegners for mangling their pronunciations (though the Brits do the bashing with a great deal more humor than the French), we Texans long ago planted our own linguistic land mines:

Hobart
Montague
Iowa Park

I’ll be the first to admit, however, that we Texans are not even on the same planet as “Woolfardisworthy.” Linguistically, that is.
