I didn’t ask for answer actually, I just wanted them to give me a hint regarding the answer to the question. Since no one has responded, I had to ask for a help because I wanted to make a progress. If you give me a hint rather than the answer, I’d be very grateful. I hope this doesn’t violate Coursera’s honor policy. Thank you.

you are welcome @cenksaglam . yes you can wait there is members in the community here in  music forum if they enrolled in the course they will help you . also you can post in the discussion forum of the courses their you will find also more learners and mentors if they are active they will help you  .

@cenksaglam , let’s review the information first and maybe the correct response will become clear to you. I don’t know what the question is, ( and would prefer not to know so I don’t accidentally tell you the answer)...but here is an explanation about playing up the neck:

The guitar, like other string instruments, can play the same note a variety of ways. Take the open first string E.

If you play the second string, B….you need to keep moving up the neck until you come to that very same E. That would be on the 5th fret. 
The same goes for chords. You can play the same chord up the neck, or use a capo. 
Did this help clarify the information?

Can you explain what you need explained without divulging the question?

I hope we can help you understand this.

Hi again. I don’t appreciate you gave the best answer to yourself. People here take their own time at trying to show you the best way to your problem. Chosing one is hard sometimes, but it’s not nice avoiding it :D

Right, you didn’t ask for the answer -- you made something worse in my opinion, which is asking people to “share” it which is about asking someone else to violate the rules in the place of you :D

Whatever the case please let me humbly point out that when you do a question, always try to be the most circumstantiated you can, never assuming any detail as obvious: Who, what, why, when, where and Wow!

Hello,

 

I understand what you mean and your concerns. The reason that I gave the best answer to myself is that I wanted people to know that I’ve been searching for the answer to this question for like months. Also, rather than just giving the best answer, I wanted to pin my comment so that people can see my reply. If it’s so important for you to me choosing who answered the best, I can of course choose another comment as the best answer. Again, I chose my answer as the best answer in order to avoid misunderstandings and confusion. Moreover, I already completed the program on my own and received my certificate. However, my final grade was 99% and I just wanted to find ways to get 100 because I have an idealist personality. One month ago, I asked, “could you please give some tips regarding the 8th question?”. Since no one has responded and due to my idealism, I wrote this. Furthermore, I completed every assignment ON MY OWN and never violated any honor code before. I have never written to any discussion forums or Community forums about the answers to the quizzes. You can view every community forum, and you’ll see that I’ve never asked about answers before. Moreover, I took regular notes about every course I attended. Lastly, the reason that I asked the answer was that everyone answered this question wrong and they thought there was something wrong with this question. I wondered whether I answered it incorrectly or there was something wrong with this question in order to learn efficiently. When there might be something wrong with a question, it’s essential for us to know the answer in order to understand whether there was something wrong with the question or not. 

 

  • I also watched every video of the course in order to learn this topic and showed my best effort to learn. I want you to know that I spent some effort and I did my best. If you recognize my efforts, I’d be very grateful.

If you become more considerate rather than accusing an individual, I’d be very grateful. As a person who completed approximately 17 COURSES ON HIS OWN in Coursera, these accusations made me feel emotionally devastated. Please be more aware of this situation.

 

Kind regards,

 

Cenk

I’m sorry the way you can intend my suggestions.

First of all, as I’m writing you’re labeled “newcomer - 2 replies” so nothing hints me your previous behaviour

If the problem was that there is a consistent doubt on the assignment integrity as per se, this is something different than the effort you put in things, which is a private affair.

 If you share your answers and explain how you did it, I'd be very grateful 

To what I see, you just asked people to post their answers, this could be enough to ban you.

Take care.

I’m sorry for the mistake that I’ve done. Since no one has shared any answers so far, I believe that this isn’t a violation of the Honor Code. Also, how can I change the comment that has answered my question best?

oh let it go -- you see there’s a music teacher here so if you just would mind to be more detailed so that they could understand what the thing is about -- and guess whether is that realistically a mistake, or you’re just slightly missing the target

I’d call for Judith then who already (see) tried to push for you to give the important facts in this issue

(however I seem you can change the best answer because I saw other people did it :? )

Hello again, I would like to make my final statement to clarify my messages:

  1. I had completed the “Chord Formula Quiz” before I asked for an explanation. I had no motive to cheat on my quiz – I had already received my certificate on March 6, 2021, which is 2 months prior to when I posted this. I neither condone nor perform academic dishonesty. It is impossible for me to cheat, really. 
  2. I want to thank Judith for their explanation; that was really informative. To give a further explanation (as per ATP’s suggestion), here’s my overall reasoning: Chord interval of minor 7 ends with B7. B minor 7’s chord interval and chord chart are 1, b3, 5, b7. Therefore, when we apply the root position, the chord interval becomes Rb35b7, right? Or am I missing some details there? I wanted to ask this as my answer was counted incorrect despite what I assumed to be true. (see 3rd point please)
  3. Please note that asking for hints and explanations about one’s misunderstandings or disagreement with grades is allowed in Coursera’s guidelines.
  4. I am, again, sorry for talking about “the effort I put in.” I was in a state of shock about the accusations, and I wrote that in an emotionally unavailable state. I know emotional responses are not a valid argument, but let’s not confuse those words with my overall justifications. 
  5. The reason why I gave the best answer to myself was to highlight my reply so it could be seen. It wasn’t meant to “uplift” my answers. As ATP has pointed out, I am indeed a newcomer to the forums, so I don’t know how to change that. If you show me how, I’ll fix it.

All in all, I did NOT ask for an answer or attempt to cheat. I simply asked why my answer was incorrect since I believed and further reasoned it was correct. Again, asking about the course content and disagreements about the grades is allowed (see Coursera guidelines in 3a and 3b). Again, English is not my first language; I could’ve phrased my sentences much better and avoided confusion altogether. I humbly apologize for the confusion and turmoil I have created. Again, I have not attempted academic dishonesty, and I never would. If you have any questions, please reply to this comment so we can resolve it. Thank you all and I apologize once again for this unfavorable conversation.

See if this course may help you with a colder approach, I myself started it just some days ago

best luck

@cenksaglam , yes, you have the correct intervals for a minor 7th chord. Did you ask others in your forum if they got this question wrong?Usually, when there is mistake in an answer, many others will express their dissatisfaction, even report it to the Help Center. But if this isn’t the case, then there might be something you are misinterpreting or misreading. Sometimes it’s a tricky question such as what wouldn’t be correct, rather than what is correct...or to select more than one answer.You might have the correct answer for a root position minor 7th but it doesn’t exactly answer   what the question asked.

I can understand the frustration of not knowing. If you can’t figure it out and no one in your course can help, see if you can reach the Instructor.You can often find their e mail if they are part of a University. The Help Center might be able to deliver a message from you to the Instructor as a last resort.

I hope everything has been cleared up now. ATP is very helpful and someone who can be counted on to respond to others. Music means a lot to us all here. It’s important for us to be able to work together and help one another. I hope you will follow this forum, join in discussions and perhaps start a few as well. Wishing you much success. 🎶
