The immediate recognition and description of the thirteen enharmonic intervals within the octave is a quest that students on popular music degree programmes regularly undertake but rarely achieve. The problem often lies in a disconnect between the sound heard and the sound recognized when the task is undertaken without recourse to an instrument. During the eleventh century, Guido d’Arezzo is known to have used the joints on the hand to help music students recognize and sing intervals from hexachords; this article considers a rethinking of this tool with regard to recent investigations into corporeal intentionality and presents a methodology for the twenty-first century musician.
