The BBC has reported that a blue-white chord has inspired an incredible number of chord shapes and chords over the years.
The BBC reported on its website that the submarine chord originated from a piece of music by Johann Sebastian Bach and has been performed in more than 15 countries, including the US and UK.
“In fact, the original version of the chord, which was composed by Johann Philipp Bach in 1852, is now played in more countries than any other chord in the world, including in the US,” the BBC reported.
While many other types of chords were created, the blue-whitened version was the first to be recorded.
In fact the original blue- and white submarine chords were played in a special version by British composer Peter Hook, which featured more of the tones of the original chord.
It is unclear exactly when or how the original was recorded, but the BBC says Hook played it at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 1882.
Hook was the composer of the theme from “Spartacus” by George Bernard Shaw, which is considered to be the first opera to be written in blue.
For the song, the theme was written by composer J. S. Bach, and was performed by the Royal Concert Band.
Bach wrote the original opera, which he wrote and directed himself.
