So, the geeks amongst you may have heard of Wolfram Alpha - it's a new kind of search engine like google, but in fact it really isn't - it deals in data, conversions correlations. It lets you request data presented in graphical form and many other cool things.

But bear with me - it also just happens to be the coolest musical dictionary out there!

Check it out at http://www.wolframalpha.com and try a few of these:

Want to know the notes in a Db Lydian scale, Enter "Db lydian"

Want to know what note is a minor 3rd up from Ab, enter "Ab minor 3rd"

Want to know what scale has the notes "A C D E G", enter "A C D E G A" (It will also tell you that it is a dominant 11th chord!)

Want to know the notes in an e minor chord? Type in "E minor chord"

Cool huh?

Cool man, I bookmarked the site. Typed in D minor and...Alternate scale names appeared...

Natural minor
Aeolian
Gregorian scale 2
Asavari Thaat
Se
2906 (12-digit binary
Found the Gregorian a bit fascinating. Seems to be a form of Celtic Chant.

A Gregorian mode (or church mode) is one of the eight systems of pitch organization used to describe Gregorian chant

Please read the terms of service. They've been getting attention on Slashdot because the terms are quite different from Google. I'm just sayin'...
