Solmisation ( do re mi fa sol la si do)

Post by Kurtuluş » Mon Aug 27, 2018 4:11 am

Hi,

Is there anybody who can help me to find the solfege syllables for sharpened/flattened notes? I've already found it according to the "do re mi fa sol la ti do" system. What I need is for the "do re mi fa sol la si do". The only difference between these two is to call B note "si" instead of "ti".

Sorry for my messy English.

"Ti" and "Si" mean the same thing if you use fixed Do.

If you use movable Do, here are the chromatic syllables:

1 - Do
#1 - Di
b2 - Ra
2 - Re
#2 - Ri
b3 - Me (or Ma)
3 - Mi
4 - Fa
#4 - Fi
b5 - Se
5 - Sol
#5 - Si
b6 - Le (or Lo)
6 - La
#6 - Li
b7 - Te (or Ta)
7 - Ti

Thanks Jim but the chromatic syllables you have written is based on singing B as "Ti" not "Si". And it is almost impossible to adapt to it for a person who have used "Si" (for B) all his life. I've been using "Si" for B since 30 years, I can't start using it for Gsharp.

Finally I found it!

"Most commonly, the chromatic ascending scale is "do di re ri mi fa fi sol li la si do" and the descending scale is "do si te la le sol se fa fe mi me re ra do.""

Edit: I took it from https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Music_The ... on_Systems but it is not correct. Sib is missing in the ascending scale and there are 13 syllables for 12 notes in the descending scale.
