Passing Chords

Passing chords are like LEGO Building blocks

Let us look at one of there LEGO blocks

Amazing color and changes are possible when you begin chords on the  non diatonic tones
There tones are the:
  • minor 2 (b9)
  • mine 3 (-3)
  • flat 5 (b5)
  • sharp 5 (#5)
Imaging being in the key of C and playing a Db , Eb, Gb or Ab chord!!
 
If you voice it correctly you will hear and create some amazing color and harmony to your music
 
Don't believe us? Then just watch this video!!!

 

Suppose you have a (V) - (I) chord progression in the key of Db.
That is an Ab chord to a Db chord as in the following example:
 
Ab9sus
 
DbMaj9
and you wanted to insert a passing chord in between.
 
We will show you that after you fully understand harmony, you  free to choose a passing chord based on any one of the tones in the scale!
 
That's right you can put a C chord in between, D chord, F chord or any chord as long as you voice it correctly
 
YOU ARE IN CONTROL!
Suppose you wanted to add a (II) chord in between this Ab and Db.
 
A (II) chord would be an (Eb).
We will give you many BEAUTIFUL (Eb) chords to choose from as passing chords to add between your Ab and Db.
 
In this example we inserted a beautiful
Eb9 sus #5b5 as a passing chord between the (Ab) and (Db) chord.

 

Ab9sus
Eb9

DbMaj9

 

Sample Lesson 2

We wanted the bass note to move in the cycle of 4th's while we hold down the G.

So the bass moves like this:

C - F - Bb - Eb - Ab - Db

The Windows version of our software to print out your creations in the visual format that you see above is included with our complete course packages MASTER package and above.

With the Harmony System you have COMPLETE CONTROL and it only take a few minutes.

Here again we create a sequence right at the piano in minutes where the bass moves in 4'ths.
