  1. Eleventh

    In music or music theory, an eleventh play is the note eleven scale degrees from the root of a chord and also the interval between the root and the eleventh. The interval can be also described as a compound fourth, spanning an octave plus a fourth. Since there are only seven degrees in a diatonic scale the eleventh degree is the same as the subdominant. The eleventh is considered highly dissonant with the major third. A perfect eleventh is an eleventh which spans exactly 17 semitones.
