Chapter4 —3.Note Chord Structures—The Palette Chart close close close open open open Fig. 4.13. Some Traditional Triads, Open and Close position, in C Major on wit Traditional Triads is a good family to begin with, since these structures state tonality (major or minor) clearly. Also, the other interval families’ qualities are heard relative to this family, The lightness and flexibility of the 3-note harmonic structures are well illustrated with this family, as well. These first studies will work with traditional harmonic chord progressions, but instead of interpreting the symbols as traditional chord forms, we will work with only the basic triads. Then, suspension notes moving into the triad notes from above and approach notes moving into the triad notes from below will be used to create a beautiful 3-part counterpoint. In this first study, “Stella by Flashlight,” each chord symbol’s basic triad is written in a variety of open and close positions. (This will serve as a found- ation for the upcoming suspension-approach study). The basic triads consist of the chord symbols’ root, third, and fifth, or of the chord’ third, fifth, and seventh degrees. The first bar uses a G minor triad, the basic triad built from the third, fifth, and seventh degree of the opening chord symbol, E-7('5).
