Harmonic-and-Melodic-Equivalence-V19I two triad pair-by-Bruce-Arnold-for-Muse-Eek-Publishing-Inc-222X300

Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence V19I Two Triad Pair

This course works with a Two Triad Pair consisting of two major triads 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 V19I 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.

Melodic Rotations Learning to Improvise More Based on the Composition

"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 which are also called a two triad pair. Each three note group is also frequently referred to as a "trichord."

These exercises use many different types of harmonic and melodic ideas that can be superimposed over common chord progressions, scales and other musical situations. This course concentrates on using two major triads a half step apart. An example of that would be C, E, G and Db, F, Ab. There are many ways to think about this six note grouping but one of the common ways is to think of it as six notes from a harmonic minor scale. This makes this combination a great resource for applying to any scale or chord found within the modes of that scale. Charts are included to show you how these notes function in all 12 keys as well as many other charts showing other distinctions found within this two triad combination.

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 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 V19I 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 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 Bruce this new addition of extended chord progressions with the triad pairs in blowing my mind. I've always wondered how advanced musicians just made up chord progressions on the spot that sounded fantastic. I can see with this new information that I can use a logical system to start exploring this idea with these triads. Really can't thank you enough for giving me this insight. J. Ogland

Just thought I'd drop you guys a line about this new course. The major triads a half step apart is such a cool way to think about harmonic minor harmony. Appreciate how you guys are opening my eyes to new ways of thinking and practicing! E. Grieg

Well you guys just don't give up do you? :) This Harmonic and Melodic Series is dope! I'm getting so many ideas for new improvisations that I don't even know where to start! Y. Conway

Hi Bruce, thanks so much for all your ideas on how to deal with two triad pairs. I own quite a few books on the subject and have to say that all of the information, exercises and practice tips shows me just how to proceed. I've also been checking out your music and can hear these ideas being used in both your improvisations and compositions. That has really helped me to see this whole new world of sound. G. Nieberg
