musicthat uses the syllables do(originally ut), re, mi, fa, sol(or so), la, and si(or ti) to represent the pitches of the scale, most commonly the major scale. The fixed-do system uses do for C, and the moveable-do system uses do for whatever keythe melody uses (thus B is do if the pieceis in the key of B). The relative natural minor of a scale may be represented by beginning at la.
