  Augmented fifth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The prefix 'augmented' identifies it as being the largest of the three intervals; the others being the perfect fifth and diminished fifth, which are one and two chromatic semitones smaller, respectively.
Its inversion is the diminished fourth, and its enharmonic equivalent in equal temperament is the minor sixth.
In an equal tempered tuning, an augmented fifth is equal to eight semitones, a ratio of 1:28/12 (approximately 1.587), or 800 cents.

 Augmented Sixth Chords
More precisely, augmented sixth chords are leading tone or chromatic preparations of V. However, since the interval of the augmented 6th (unlike the tritone), does not determine any particular key, the chord of resolution does not sound like a tonic.
The Italian Sixth is the simplest of the augmented sixth chords.
The note determining the functional identity of the chord is the seventh of the dominant 7th and the "root" of the German 6/5 (the note that usually appears in the soprano and forms the interval of the augmented sixth with the bass).

 Harmony - Printer-friendly - MSN Encarta
An augmented triad (such as C–E–G#) is formed by a major third and a “dissonantaugmented fifth (C–G#).
The augmented triad illustrates the point made earlier, however, that dissonance is relative: none of the intervals between any of the notes of an augmented triad is in itself dissonant, even in the context of tonal harmony.
The chord that most often leads to a return of the tonic chord is the triad built on the fifth note of the scale (the dominant chord or V chord).

 Interval (music)
When speaking of notes in the chromatic scale, it is normal to use names such as "major third", "perfect fifth" and "augmented fourth".
The names are inclusive of the two notes being considered; for example the interval between a C and a G is a fifth (C,D,E,F,G is a distance of 5 notes).
Typically names with 'minor' or 'major' in them are preferred, so the more correct way to write the interval given in the example is 'minor 7th.' The primary exception to this being in the case of a diminished 7th, which has a specific function within a full diminished 7th chord.

A perfect fourth is five semitones, a perfect fifth is seven semitones, a perfect octave is twelve semitones.
The tritone, an augmented fourth or diminished fifth is often π or TT.
The inversion of a major interval is a minor interval (and vice versa); the inversion of a perfect interval is also perfect; the inversion of an augmented interval is a diminished interval (and vice versa); and the inversion of a double augmented interval is a double diminished interval (and vice versa).

The augmented 4th and diminished 5th involving the prime are the same size in half-steps but are “spelled” differently (as a 4th and a 5th respectively).
Augmented 3rds and 7ths are uncommon, because acoustically they are equivalent (in equal temperament) to the perfect intervals of the 4th and the 8ve.

Augmented and diminished triads are represented similarly (e.g.
Although simple augmented and diminished triads are encoded + or aug and dim respectively, the symbol for altered fifths (+ and —5 or $5) in chords of the seventh, ninth, eleventh and thirteenth is always placed last after all other relevant information (e.g.
Apart from power fifths, already mentioned, there are considerable problems in encoding harmonies used in modal and bitonal jazz as well as in some types of folk music and avant-garde rock.

 Augmented chord
More specifically, the augmented chord is the three-note chord consisting of a major third and augmented fifth above the root - if the root is C, the augmented chord consists of the notes C, E and G sharp.
In twelve tone equal tempered tuning, an augmented chord has 4 semitones between the third and fifth, 4 between the root and third, and 8 between the root and fifth.
The augmented chord is considered dissonant, or unstable, and lacks tonal center or drive.

Frequently associated with octave, third and sixth intervals; however, fourths and fifths may be sounds of consonance, as in both early and 20th-century music.
Intervals of the fifth may be perfect (corresponding to major), diminished, or augmented.
Harmonic inversion: the position of the chord is changed from root position (root on the lowest pitch) to first inversion, with the third, or second inversion, with the fifth in the lowest voice.

For example, the A minor triad consists of A, C, and E. You may have noticed that the general rule for major and minor triads is that you use the first, third, and fifth degrees of the major/minor scale (major for the major triad, minor for the minor triad).
Augmented triads are created with the root, the major third above the root, and the augmented fifth above the root.
Thus, a C major triad in first inversion is E, G, and C. Second Inversion is when the fifth is “moved” from the top to the bottom of the triad so that the chord starts on the fifth degree.

Minor triads also have one of each kind of third, but their minor third is on the bottom (between root and third), with a major third between the third and fifth.
This means one more half step between the root and the fifth than is found in major and minor chords, making an augmented fifth.
This means one less half step between the root and the fifth than is found in major and minor chords, making a diminished fifth.

Their interval is a perfect fifth (when C is the lower note) because G is a fifth apart from C. When G is the lower note, their interval is a perfect fourth because C is a fourth apart from G. Like major intervals, perfect intervals may also be found by counting.
An example of a diminished interval would be that from F to Cb, which is a diminished fifth (d5).
Augmented intervals are one half step larger than a perfect or a major interval (usually with an accidental).

 Major and Minor Triads
The augmented fifth and the minor sixth may be represented by the same number of semitones in 12-tone equal temperament, but this does not mean that the aural effect of these two intervals is the same.
The intervals of a minor triad from its fifth downwards are a perfect fifth and a major third.
The fifth of the minor triad is subsidiary to the other two tones which are roots to this subsidiary.

 An Introduction To Chords
A major chord consists of a 'root' (the note on which the chord is based, usually also the lowest note of the chord), the note a 'major third' (four half-steps) higher than the root, and the note a 'minor third' (three half- steps) higher than the second note.
An augmented chord is made up of the root, the note a major third above the root, and the note another major third above the middle note.
And just as an augmented chord can be made by raising the 5 of a major chord a half step, a diminished chord can be made by lowering the 5 of a minor chord a half step.

 Augmented Chords
To understand this, it helps to see that an augmented chord is created by stacking a major third on top of a major third, and that the augmented fifth which is created by doing this is a major third below the octave of the root note.
The augmented chord is not found in the major scale or minor scale.
Augmented chords are often heard as passing chords, that is they are created as temporary chords while moving from one chord to another, in a series of chords.

All major chords and minor chords have an interval of a perfect fifth between the root and the fifth of the chord.
A perfect fifth (7 half-steps) can be divided into a major third (4 half-steps) plus a minor third (3 half-steps).
Because they don't contain a perfect fifth, augmented and diminished chords have an unsettled feeling and are normally used sparingly.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Intervals
The interval from C to C sharp is called the augmented unison or the augmented prime - 'unison' because the note names are the same (both Cs), 'augmented' because the interval is one semitone greater than a 'perfect' unison.
For example, intervals from C to G double flat, G flat, G, G sharp or G double sharp are all fifths because C to G is a fifth.
For example, the interval 'C to G' is a perfect fifth while the interval 'C to A double flat' is a diminished sixth, but to the listener, the two intervals played on a modern piano, sound identical.

 Intervals - The Method Behind the Music
Augmented intervals are when a major or perfect interval is made one half step larger, and the interval number does not change.
Augmented intervals are labeled with an "A," the abbreviation "Aug.," or a "+." For example, above, if the P5 from C to G were changed to a C to G#, it would become an augmented fifth, or +5.
Diminished intervals are labeled with a "d," the abbreviations "dim" or "deg," or a "°." For example, if the perfect fifth from C to G above were changed to a C to Gb, the interval would become a diminished fifth, or °5.

augmented chord is a major chord with an augmented fifth replacing the perfect fifth.
The key of G is a fifth above C. G Major has all the tones of the C Major scale except that F is raised a half-tone.
Among these are changes in tempo and volume, the use of rests, and the use of repetition and harmonic interplay which define a spirit or energy.

An interval of the number one or first is called a unison and an interval of the eighth is called an octave.
For example: d to e-flat is a minor second (one half step) and d to e-natural is a major second (one whole step or two half steps).
If a major or a perfect interval is made a half step larger without changing its numerical name, it becomes an augmented interval.
