Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19B Two Triad Pair

This course works with a Two Triad Pair consisting of two major triads a whole step apart. Using two triads gives your melodies a very modern sound. You can pivot back and forth between these triads in various ways and this course gives you 328 pages of exercises in all keys with MP3 and Midi files to do just that. Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19B Two Triad Pair also contains examples of how you could use these two triad pair in extended harmonic reharmonizations. These aspects make this the definitive study of this two triad pair.

Background Information on a Two Triad Pair or Two Trichords

"Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence" is a series of books that will help you to develop many different musical skills simultaneously. The source materials for these books are exercises that contain two 3 note groupings of notes which are also called a two triad pair or trichord pair. Any three note group of notes is often referred to as a "trichord."

"Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence" is a series of books that will help you to develop many different musical skills simultaneously. The source materials for these books are exercises that contain two 3 note groupings also called two triad pair, and each three note group is often called a "trichord."

The exercises contained in this course use many different types of harmonic and melodic ideas that can be superimposed over common chord progressions, scales and other musical situations. These exercises are also great for singing and rhythm studies so definitely work on that aspect. Finally, the "Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence" course concentrates on the use of the three note pitch class sets (trichords) by pairing each trichord with another trichord with the same prime form. For instance, in this volume C, E, G and D, F#, A are both 037 pitch class sets because they both contain a major third and a 5th within their interval structure. This is a great sequence because it uses six notes that are find in any of the major modes therefore you will find a ton of useful applications which are discussed in the course.

Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series

This course is part of the Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series which explores over 50 different three note pairs that I've used in compositions and improvisations. To see all volumes follow the link to explore each volume and hear examples from each course as well as finding links to compositions that I've written using each combination.

Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Exercises

This course is divided up into two sets of exercises written in treble and bass clef. The 1st set of two triad pair exercises gets gradually harder but also more musical. Depending upon your musical skills you can start anywhere you want but for beginners I would recommend starting from the 1st exercise of the five. The 2nd set of exercises are called "Atomic Scales." These exercises are a technical exercise that really helps you to learn these ideas but also sound great as a melody right off the bat. There are 6 different types of "Atomic Scales" exercises in this course. You don't have to play every exercise in every key. But doing this will greatly increase the likelihood of you using it in real music in the future. Below is a listing of the exercises found in this course:

  • Closed position studies.
  • 1st inversion studies.
  • 2nd inversion studies.
  • Random combinations of closed position along with 1st and 2nd inversion.
  • Random combinations of closed position along with 1st and 2nd inversion with rhythmic displacement.
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 1
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 2
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 3
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 4
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 5
  • Atomic Scales Exercise 6

Explanation of 2nd Set of Exercises in Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19B Two Triad Pair Course

Below is an explanation for each set of the 6 different atomic scale exercises found in this course. Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups are presented in six different configurations. These two triad pair exercises are highly melodic and can be used verbatim as melodies when soloing. If we thought of the three notes as A,B,C then there would be six different ways to combine these notes. i.e. ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB and CBA. All exercises include MP3s as well as midi files so that you can hear and play these exercises at any tempo as well as versions in all 12 keys.

  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the ABC sequence
  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the ACB sequence
  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the BAC sequence
  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the BCA sequence
  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the CAB sequence
  • Three octave sequences that move back and forth between the two 3 note groups in the CBA sequence

What people are saying:

Wow the original Charlie Banacos "Double Mambo" concept with 328 pages of exercies. This seems like it came right out of the Banacos play book of leaving no stone unturned :) I see why Mr. Arnold got so excited about this sound when he was introduced to it. I've never seen anyone talk about using these two triad sets in extended chord sequences. This is really something that will take a lot of study and application on my part. J. Ogland

Thanks Bruce, this is a must own volume in the series. Such a strong and unique sound with the two major triads. If it's good enough for McCoy Tyner then it's good enough for me! K. Edwards

Bruce I just wanted to give a shout out on this new Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19B course. What a cool sound these two triads make! Appreciate all the work you put into it. E. Greig

Hey Muse Eek just wanted to give you my 2 cents on this new course. First the "Atomic Scales" exercise is really helping me get these ideas under my fingers. Also thanks for pointing out how Tyner's "Passion Dance" is totally derived from this sound. Listen to that track has been very inspiring. J. Samuels
