Thanks for the response.

I do know the rules and mainly I was thinking out loud. Let me put it this way, why would it different if I play a Db major and say F# instead of Gb would it be different? You still need to move a finger to the same fret and you still get the same sound. I understand that it is an augmented second, not a diminished third, I just wonder WHY it is what it is :D

I did a search for the rules to try and find out but nothing showed up. If you know of a good book or even a web site that explains the rules rather then just letting you know what the rules are I would appreciate it if you could let me know.

I have a problem of trying to over analyze things at times and this is one of those things.
