22 Quartal Harmony II TBk2

Quartal Harmony (chords comprised of fourths) is used extensively in jazz.  This chapter demonstrates more kinds of quartal possibilities & their function: interior quartals, chains of quartals, quartals used with the pentatonic scale, piling on three or four quartals in a single chord, and using quartals with drones and chord planning situations.

21 Quartal Harmony I TBk2

This chapter introduces an easy way to incorporate quartal harmony (chords comprised of fourths) into praise choruses & hymns.  The unique & valuable symbol, C2Q (from bottom up: D.G.C), is introduced and explained. Another way to think of this is to use numbers in the scale. The scale degrees, 258, would also represent a quartal chord.  Quartals sound particularly good with the third in the bass (eg., C2Q/E). Examples, exercises, assignments are offered.
