Two Triad Pair-Harmonic-and-Melodic-Equivalence-V19G-by-Bruce-Arnold-for-Muse-Eek-Publishing-Inc-

Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19G Two Triad Pair

This course works with a Two Triad Pair consisting of a minor triad and diminished triad a half 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 V19G 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."

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 keep that in mind as you work through the course. The three note groupings in these "Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence" course can also be thought of as pitch class sets. For instance, in this volume C, Eb, G is an 037 and D, F, B is an 036 pitch class set. The numbers indicate the number of half steps so C = 0, Eb = 3, G = 7. The 3 an 7 are indicated that they are 3 and 7 half steps above "C." This two triad pair or trichord pair is a great sequence because it forms part of a melodic minor ascending or harmonic minor scale but also can be used to outline dominant to tonic relationships. That is highly unusual that a two triad pair has all of these characteristics!

Unique Aspect of These Two Triad Pair Books

All of Mr. Arnold's books have a sharp focus on the ear training aspect of any technique or idea. "Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence" Series is no different. Each example is always relating the idea of how you would hear this in real music. This book includes a section where the two triad pair are put into common chord progressions but more importantly are shown how these progressions relate to the overall key center. Learning music based on how your hear it rather than relating everything to a chord by chord approach is the rosetta stone of music. This is the secret to the previously undecipherable mystery of understanding music from an aural perspective.

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 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 two triad pair 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 V19G 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 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 two triad pair 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:

Hey Guys, You are probably getting tired of my weekly emails but I'm getting into these two triad/trichord combinations so much that I want to let you know how much they are helping me improvise. Like this new 19G combination all the two triad pairs that also form a chord progression are really special. It is so cool that they are part of a common scale but also form a common chord progression. You made a couple of points in this book that really gave me a Eureka moment! Thinking of each combination your current key center and thinking of all of these combinations as really templates for melodies. I also really appreciate the pages 9 and 10 where you lay out some common chord progressions and how you would hear them in relationship to the overall key center. This is all so awesome, thanks! J. Ogland

I thought I'd drop you guys an email to thank you for this new Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series. Since you have been releasing a new course in this series each week I've been taking 15 minutes of practice each day to play through some of the exercises. One key per day and moving cycle 5 through the keys as you recommended. This has really helped my playing and knowledge on my instrument. I can't get through all keys in one week but this 15 minute practice time is really paying off and because some triads repeat in other combinations I'm getting pretty quick at getting these combinations under my fingers. T. Truman

Hey Bruce, Kudos on this new series of books. I really like your ideas on how to implement all these combinations. My favorite so far have been the triad pair combinations that also form a chord progression. I've been a scale guy for too long and really need to start making more harmonic oriented lines in my improv. Thanks for all of this and I'm sure I'll be shooting you some questions via email soon. H. Samson

I'm new to this whole idea of using two triads to improvise. I find it intriguing that you can use these combinations as a scale, chord or chord progression. I also appreciate the PDF that accompanies each course. They are very informative and point me in the right direction as far as how to proceed with each two triad combination. I finding that the exercises are really helping me to master my triads so whether I ultimately use these combinations is immaterial because they are helping me learn my triads! Appreciate you making these available! A. Evans
