LESSON 8
The Trichords and Melodic movements around of first steps of the harmonic functions
 
Bb Blues. The main objective of the eighth lesson learn to build musical phrases using the Major Pentatonic Trichords and Melodic movements around of first steps of the harmonic functions. The eighth lesson contains only the Major Pentatonic Scale. The first and second exercises consists of three pairs of the Blues Changes - one listening example, then in the next repeats exactly the same thing. Since the first step of subdominant not have in the major pentatonic scale, we take the central tone the fifth step of the subdominant function.  In the first exercise hold out the 1st steps of the Tonic and Dominant harmonic functions, the Subdominant function 5th step, then play: Central Tone, step down, Central Tone (within the framework of the Major Pentatonic Scale), and then: Central Tone, step up, Central Tone (within the framework of the Major Pentatonic Scale) 
 
 
 
In the second exercise will build Trichords on the first steps of Tonic, Dominant and on the fifth step of Subdominant. The Tonic and Subdominant function is used Lower Trichord (Red) built up and Upper Triсhord (Blue) built down from the first step of the Tonic function and from the fifth step of the Subdominant function. The Dominant function is used Upper Triсhord (Blue), built up from the first step of the Dominant function. In first track the Tonic and Subdominant functions is used Lower Trichord (Red). In second track the Tonic and Subdominant functions is used Upper Triсhord (Blue)  
 
 
 
In the third exercise, play in turn using Trichords and Melodic movements around of first step of Tonic, Dominant and around fifth step of Subdominant harmonic functions. Three tracks in a row, of which the first and third I begin, and the second you start
