***MonthlyIndieMixtape #11***

Some interesting musical facts about 11:

- The interval of an octave and a fourth is an eleventh. A complete eleventh chord has almost every note of a diatonic scale.
- The number of thumb keys on a bassoon, not counting the whisper key. (A few bassoons have a twelfth thumb key.)
- In the mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, Spinal Tap's amplifiers go up to eleven.
- In Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, there are eleven consecutive repetitions of the same chord.
- In Tool's song Jimmy, the number eleven is heard numerous times in the lyrics.
