How to build the harmonic structure of a piece (part 8)


Building chord progrssions in the extended key

In the last lesson we learned the fundamental lesson which allows to build chord progressions with chords of the natural minor scale.
Today, we will put this into practice through several examples on the piano.

In particular we will learn:

  • to use the chords of the extended key according to their function
  • to build chord progressions using extended key chords
  • which are the most effective inversions in this key
  • use the lowered sixth degree also in the extended key

After this lesson you will be able to move around the world of minor keys with ease and compose music pieces with effective harmony.
