    • CHORDS: the building blocks of music
      Music 10
    • What is a chord?
      Any grouping of notes that sound as being played simultaneously
      Notes in a chord can be selected according to rules or a pattern or at random
      In western music, the construction of chords follows a set of rules so that they can progress from one in to another in a way that sounds familiar and pleasing to the ear
    • The Triad
      A triad is one of the most basic types of chord
      It consists of three notes that are stacked in thirds
      The triad is considered to be the building block of functional harmony. Without it, our music would sound very different!
    • The Parts of the Triad
      The notes in the triad, when arranged from lowest to highest, are called:
      The fifth (5)
      The third (3)
      The root (1)
    • Types of triads
      There are 4 types of triads:
      Major
      Minor
      Diminished
      Augmented
    • Major Triad
      In a major triad, there are 3 intervals that occur:
      A M3 from the root to the third
      A m3 from the third to the fifth
      A P5 from the root to the fifth
    • Minor Triad
      In a minor triad, 3 intervals occur:
      A m3 from the root to the third
      A M3 from the third to the fifth
      A P5 from the root to the fifth
    • Diminished Triad
      Diminished triads have three intervals:
      A m3 from root to third
      A m3 from third to fifth
      A d5 from root to fifth
    • Augmented Triad
      Augmented triads have three intervals:
      A M3 from root to third
      A M3 from third to fifth
      An aug5 from root to fifth
    • Seventh Chord
      A seventh chord is merely a triad (scale degrees 1, 3 and 5) with scale degree 7 added on top.
    • Cluster Chords/Tone Clusters
      A cluster chord is made up of at least three notes, arranged chromatically
