07 KImprovBk1 – Added Seconds

Added Seconds — adding a second to a triad (eg. C – D – E – G) – help to modernize and provide new color to old-sounding triads. They are used in almost all contemporary styles of music.  They are useful in hymns too. Traditional  harmonic progressions can remain the same – the change is not radical, but subtle.  We examine added seconds without the third and with the third of major and minor triads.
