Just as people have analyzed texts to determine letter frequency, what is the most frequent scale degree? (For typical pieces with a key signature). I'm looking for a count that's treats all note-values equally, e.g. one quarter note C and one half note C each count as one note.
The only thing that I found was https://www.hooktheory.com/blog/music-theory-analysis-1300-songs-for-songwriting-part2/ which only lists chords and doesn't have a direct a correspondence to scale degrees' frequency. What have been the results of such calculations in the past, if there have been any?
I don't have any particular genre in mind, though I realize that restricting to a certain body of music is necessary to conduct such an analysis. A possibility that comes to mind is https://abcnotation.com/tunes , as well as various MIDI datasets for e.g. classical music and jazz. Again, I don't really care what genre was chosen.
The reason I ask is because I am devising my own musical shorthand and would like to make the most frequent scale degrees the fastest to write.
