Module 1 Post 14 [ Augmented Fifths ]

Augmented Fifths

The augmented fifth is the fifth interval of a scale. There are 3 types of fifths. Let’s use C major as an example, the fifth note or dominant in the C major scale is G. A perfect fifth for C major is G, diminished fifth for C major is G flat and finally the augmented fifth is G#. An augmented fifth is an interval that has been widened from the perfect fifth. (A turns to A#, B turns to B# etc.) I will use this page to go more in depth to fifths.
