    Hmmmm, even when there are, say, ten tones in a chord?

    I would like to study this more in depth. Would you cite a source that discusses this? I had no luck looking this up in, for example, the...

    Strength of chord tones?

    Ok, so I have root-3rd-5th as a major chord.

    The root will sound the strongest, but what's next? I assume it's the 5th?

    And if the tones are juggled, does this change tone strength?

    Or does...

    What a mindblower, mDecks! When I get more time, I'll study this entire thread to help me make sense with your app. "Messiaen modes"? Years ago, I met Olivier Messiaen and we conversed in French! ...

    This is VERY interesting. Although I'm classically trained, I am looking at all of this in more of a "folk context" on chorded stringed instruments, where "hard" chords occur more than suspensions. ...

  10. iiisus4 (or sus2) and viisus4 (or sus2): Are there such things?

    It seems like sus4 and sus2 chords on steps 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 of the major scale are fairly consonant. But when I look at iiisus4 and viisus4, I wonder, because the 4th and 5th in these chords are...

  13. Problems responding to threads from subscribing to topic

    Hi,

    There is no Help link here, so I guess I have to go public. I really don't want to do that, but this is an ongoing problem and maybe others are experiencing the same thing.

    Please, let's start over:

    I've got C-E-G-Bb. When I move the C to the top of the chord, for E-G-Bb-C, it's a first inversion. But is it ALSO E1/2dim6?

    Yes, or no?

    Thanks,
  15. Dominant sevenths (maybe a question only for jazz people?)

    The second part yes. The first part, no. I'm more interested in the first part.

    I've got C-E-G-Bb. When I move the C to the top of the chord, for E-G-Bb-C, it's a first inversion. But is it ALSO E1/2dim6?

    I'm asking this because F-A-C-E is Fmaj7, but its first inversion,...

    And the late Walter Piston, in Chapter 4 of his book "Harmony", shows just one instance of the pentatonic scale, notated 1-2-3-__-5-6-__, rather than 1-2-__-4-5-6-__, which I've seen everywhere else,...

    Seventh chords as Roman numerals

    I'm looking at the 7th chord written on the first degree of the major scale. Seems to me that, as a Roman numeral, it's I7. Or, is it Imaj7? Or does it depend on the chording system used?

    C harm. min.: 3 flats, and the 7th degree gets a natural sign.

    Naming the triads built on modes

    The scenario is:
    G Mixolydian: G-A-B-C-D-E-Fnat

    The wrinkle: This mode is written with one sharp in the key sig and a natural sign in front of F. (No choice here. I'm writing a book about...
