Advanced chordal playing made easy



I'm working on the book by Tim Miller and Mick Goodrick. It's called Creative Chordal Harmony.
Read about it here!

The basic concept is based on Generic Modality Compression (GMC). You take a scale and leave out the root. From the six notes that are left you can build all sorts of 3 note groupings.
In the example here I took Eb major scale : Eb F G Ab Bb C D
Leave out the Eb and you are left with: F G Ab Bb C D
From these six notes you can create 2 triads Fm ( F Ab C) and Gm ( G Bb D)


Other combinations are possible too. I'll think I'll post some more examples later.
