How much is in a rank of wood?
The rank of wood measures the number of wood piles you have in a cord or rick. To measure a rank, first rank the pile of firewood. Firewood is often measured by the cord, which is 4 feet high, 4 feet wide and 8 feet long.
The only official measure that is generally accepted is the cord – a stacked pile that measures 4' high by 4' deep by 8' wide (128 cubic feet). If the firewood is cut into 16” lengths, a cord (sometimes called a “bush cord”) will contain three rows. Each of these rows is one “face cord” or “rick.”
- All triads are chords, but not all chords are triads. A triad is a chord with only three notes, and is built on thirds. To make a triad, we take a note, add the note a third higher, and then add another note a third higher again. A chord contains at least two notes; it can have 3, 4, 5 or even more!
- In music theory, a major chord ( Play (help. · info)) is a chord that has a root note, a major third above this root, and a perfect fifth above this root note. When a chord has these three notes alone, it is called a major triad.
- A 12-bar blues is divided into three four-bar segments. A standard blues progression, or sequence of notes, typically features three chords based on the first (written as I), fourth (IV), and fifth (V) notes of an eight-note scale.
