The third string is an optional argument and so must be checked. As mentioned in Chapter 3, named variables that aren't used are automatically assigned the value of undefined. The value undefined converts into the Boolean value false, so the intent of the if statement in this function is to concatenate the third argument only if it is provided. The problem is that undefined is not the only value that gets converted to false, and a string is not the only value that gets converted to true .

The third string, when it accompanies the first as a pedal tone, is tuned to the octave of the first string, which makes a fifth with the second string. The way these intervals work may be better understood as follows: when a fourth is inverted, it becomes a fifth, and the sum of the two intervals is an octave.
