  • Hey GMC Folks,

    Welcome to my lesson about Tone relations !

    This exercise is just another point of view of chords on relation to the bass line, and how triads (solo part) are employed over chord progression.

    A triad is a three note chord that includes the root,third and fifth. The triad may be played in root position, first inversion,where the third is the bottom note of the voicing,or second inversion, where the fifth is the bottom note of the voicing.
    Now,triads by playing through chords are (of course) the easiest way to create chords progression, but how about solo parts ?!
    This may seem a little difficult, but if you concentrate you can "convert" any triad chords, major,minor,penatonic major,pent.minor into a solo part !

    More complex chords, polychords, are created by playing one triad over another triad, or by playing a seventh chord, or a chord with altered upper extensions such as ninths, elevenths, thirteenths..

    Here we go:
    Chord progression : E/F#m,G#m,A,C#m,F#m,B,B7
    TS: 4/4
    Tempo: 72bpm
