RANJER GUITARS
The Artademic design of Ranjer instruments allows six-note major and minor chords to be played by a novice, using only one finger. Here's how that works: In ancient times, fret placements were calculated by inverting the fractions and multiplying the length of the string, according to the saying, "As Above, So Below, But Vice-Versa.

The three notes of any major chord are in the ratio of 4 : 5 : 6. So, if a string is 25 inches long, tuned to 440 cycles per second (A), the interval is 110 and the next note in the chord is 550 cps (C#), a ratio of 5/4. The fret is then placed at 4/5 of 25, or 20 inches from the bridge (and 5 inches from the nut). The next note in the chord is 660 cps (E), a ratio of 6/4, and the fret is placed at 2/3 of 25, or 16 2/3 inches from the bridge.

Ranjer Jeometrik guitar necks are not chromatic but "Just-Intoned" to this Harmonic Law, and tuned like sacred Irish harps. Therefore, the lines of a musical staff represent the actual strings. No need for guitar tablatures. By returning to this simple principle, Music can be taught differently, reconnecting to Math and Science through Geometry.
