A (Sharp), J (Flat), or # (Natural) not in the signature, is called
an ACCIDENTAL, and continues its effect through the measure in which
it occurs, and no farther.
When a tone commences on an unaccented part of a measure, and
continues through an accented part, it is said to be syncopated; and
should always be accented.
The Chromatic Scale consists of half steps, as follows:
