Advanced Chords

In Beginning Steps my words were: “Dare to be simple; use basic chords.” In Bigger Steps our palette of chords is expanded as familiar sequential patterns are studied and applied. In Advanced Chords, there are new delights to be discovered as we move beyond major and minor to other scales: Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, and Mixolydian. Modulation, the final session is filled with simple, then creative and more complex modulations to all keys, an invaluable tool.

The topics include:

  • The Altered Mediant Chord
  • Tri-tone Substitute Chords
  • Modal Scales and Chords
  • Modulation to All Keys

In addition to the MP4 videos, the musical examples are included as a file of Powerpoint slides. The Powerpoint slides can be projected on a screen for classroom presentations. The CD-R includes “Snap Shot Views” (excerpts) that can be transferred to a mobile device. On the CD-R insert mention is made that the tutorial is available on my website. This is not the case for the new and current website.

The cost of Advanced Chords: $10.95 plus tax and shipping.
