Composition: here are the notes that make your music more effective (part 11)


How to use non-harmonic tones with seventh chords

In the previous lessons we learned how to use non-haronic tones in the case of chords made up of only 3 notes (the triads).

  • But what happens if I decide to compose a melody using also seventh chords?
  • How can we use chord tones and non-harmonic tones in the case of seventh chords?

Today we will answer these questions and will understand that, depending on the kind of music that we want to compose, we can use choose between different solutions.

And in this we will have a higher array of musical tools.
