 Sep 5 2009, 01:18 PM Post #2 Instructor Group: GMC Instructor Posts: 8.109 Joined: 13-September 08 From: Nis, Serbia Member No.: 5.892 Lets get started Roman!In your guitar CV you mentioned theory and harmony as your main weakness. We will today start from very beginning in theory and harmony. Here is your 1st assignment!Theory reading :- I would like you to read my posts from links provided below.- Once you read it all, memorize 3 and 4 part harmony in C major scale.- Learn to apply scale degrees rather then numbers ( I in C major is C, IV in C is F etc).- Write out in this thread all notes for 3 and 4 part harmony in C major scale. Time limit for 1st assignment would be a week from now! (13th of September).Here are the links :Major scale harmony and chord functions CadencesI would also like you to answers questions bellow :1) What is scale? What defines it? 2) How do we create chords in Major scale (for example)? What interval is used to build chords? 3) How many notes does Major scale have?4) How many modes does Major scale have? 5) Name all the modes in Major scale. 6) Name formula of Major scale using half steps and whole steps.7) How many types of triads (3 note chords) we have in any major scale? Name them.This should be enough to get us going! You can send me answer to those questions via PM as I will give this small test to couple of guys here on MTP. I don't anybody to cheat and copy answers from each other! Let me know if you have any questions Roman, I will be more than happy to help out! -------------------- My Video Lessons

QUOTE Write out in this thread all notes for 3 and 4 part harmony in C major scale. 3 part harmony: (i hope this makes sense )I: C major : C E GII: D minor : D F AIII: E minor: E G BIV: F major: F A C V: G major: B G DVI: A minor: A C EVII: B diminished: B D FVIII: C major: C E G4 part harmony:I: C major7: C E G BII: D minor7 : D F A CIII: E minor7: E G B DIV: F major: F A C EV: G dominant7: B G D AVI: A minor7: A C E GVII: B minor7b5: B D F AVIII: C major7: C E G BWell i hope this is how you want it and correct. I know now that the 3 part build chord that have 3 notes in it. The steps between the notes are 1 - 3 -5 and on I IV V i can found the Major chords on the other degrees i found the minor chords except on the VII there i find a diminished chord.At the 4 part i add another step, the 7. Here are on I and IV the major chrods II III VI the minor7. On V a dominant 7 chord and on VII i find the Minor7b5 .I hope i understood it correctly. I am looking forward to your answer.cheers Roman This post has been edited by edguy: Sep 6 2009, 05:06 PM -------------------- My gear:Schecter Blackjack ATX FRIbanez SA 220 FmLine 6 POD HD (Desktop)

I don't know what the b5 does. b5 stands for interval of Diminished 5th. That interval is also known as TRITONE or Augmented 4th. I did lesson on it in my interval series. Check out complete interval series on the link HEREMinor7b5 is basically Minor7th chord with lowered 5th of the chord -------------------- My Video Lessons

Since you already read two links I provided, this shouldn't be too difficult for you.- Read my theory and harmony posts from links provided bellow.- Once you have read everything, write out cadences for following tonal centers1) F Ionian2) G# Dorian3) C Phrygian4) E Lydian5) A Mixolydian6) F# AeolianHere are the links :Major scale harmony and chord functions Cadences -------------------- My Video Lessons
 Sep 11 2009, 10:01 AM Post #12 Learning Roadie Group: Members Posts: 532 Joined: 13-February 07 From: Germany, BW Member No.: 1.193 Hey Pedja,i have a little question about cadences. Is there always the same (i call it formular) for building chord progressions. For example every Ionian mode have the 2 possibilities I IV V I or II V I?If yes i think i could answer your assignment soon .Roman -------------------- My gear:Schecter Blackjack ATX FRIbanez SA 220 FmLine 6 POD HD (Desktop)

All the cadences from one major scale transmit to all the other keys. You guess it right for Ionian mode, now get working on other modes and post answers in this thread here! -------------------- My Video Lessons

For the rest you have to relate to original key and then based on that figure out how many sharps or flats that key has and write the cadence. Where does G# Dorian come from? Dorian is what mode in Major scale? Compare everything to C like I did in that post, it should help you to figure out keys! -------------------- My Video Lessons

In bold you will find example that I will correct now. C Phrygian is 3rd mode of what major scale ? Go down 2 whole steps and you will find an answer. C is our starting note, down a whole step has to be some sort of B (in this case its Bb!) and from Bb we go down another whole step (it has to be some sort of A) in this case Ab! So our key is Ab major. If we have Ab major key, we can't have any sharps in that key. Also another trick to know if you did it right or not is to check your note names and never have 2 of the same with different symbols. For example, it is impossible to have in major scale both C and C# We would rather have C and Db. Hope that makes sense, let me know if you have any questions about it. -------------------- My Video Lessons

So what things are wrong now in my solution only C Phrygian if yes here is my correction:Imin bIImaj: C minor, Db MajorImin bVIImin: C minor, Bb minorImin bIImaj bVIImin Imin: C minor, Db Major, Bb minor, C minorPs: did you had the time to make the GP tab for the intro i send to you?
