So to like the one or two people who read this blog, I changed the name of it. Why did I do that?
Well, as I outlined in one of my first posts, I chose the Greek word “pente” for my blog because that’s what my last name literally is in Greek. However, I first came across the word “pente” when I was studying music (former music major here) – as in pentatonic scale.
Anyway, a “diapente” is the musical term for a perfect 5th, which happens to be what I play a lot on my guitar since I play rock/metal music. In fact, one of the songs I wrote is named after my blog and website: Deus Diapente. I chose to name that song what I did because it includes a Tritone substitution, which I stole from jazz. That basically means substituting one “diapente” with a diminished version of it which just so happens to flip another diminished diapente in the original chord around.
Needless to say, it’s pretty goddamn awesome. A “godly perfect fifth” if you will.
Anyway, back to business as usual.
