At its most basic, an interval is the difference in pitch between two tones. Intervals are normally measured as the difference between the lower tone and the higher. For instance, the interval between C and G is called a fifth; the interval between strings on a violin, cello, mandolin, etc. is a fifth; the interval between guitar and bass strings, normally, is a fourth.
