Harmony Book Vol.1 – Chord Construction & Beginning Harmony
This book shows you the beginning of notes, clefs, intervals, scales and guitar fretboard visualization.
• Fretboard vizualization
• Chord constructions
• Triad chords and inversions (over 60 shapes)
• Tetrad chords and inversions (over 180 shapes)
• Suspended chords & added tone chords (over 90 shapes)
• Extended chords & Altered chords (over 300 shapes)
• Chord Families and Modes
Apart from chords, you will learn the relationship between scales, chords and modes, which is extremely important to master before going onto the complex harmonic or melodic ideas. Although we don’t cover scales or improvisation in this book, we use the scales to show you the quantity of chords that we can have for each one of them thus understanding the chord families and their possibilities.
All of these subjects are organized in a very useful way showing many chord possibilities on each string and on each degree (all of them with their respective fretboard shape), which will give you many options to harmonize (or reharmonize) the songs you play, or even help you to create your own songs and harmonies.
