LESSON 9
The Trichords and Melodic movements around of third steps of the harmonic functions
 
Bb Blues. The main objective of the ninth lesson learn to build musical phrases using the Major Pentatonic Trichords and Melodic movements around of third steps of the harmonic functions. The ninth lesson contains only Major Pentatonic Scale. The first and second exercises consist of three pairs of the Blues Changes - one listening example, then in the next repeats exactly the same thing. Since the third step of dominant not have in the major pentatonic scale, we take the central tone the first step of the dominant function.  In the first exercise hold out the 3th steps of the Tonic and Subdominant harmonic functions, the Dominant function 1st 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 third steps of Tonic, Subdominant and on the first step of Dominant. The Tonic function is used Lower Trichord (Red) built down from the third step of the Tonic function. The Subdominant function is used Upper Triсhord (Blue) built around the third step of the Subdominant function. The Dominant function is used Upper Triсhord (Blue), built up from the first step of the Dominant function.  
 
 
 
In the third exercise, play in turn using Trichords and Melodic movements around of third step of Tonic, Subdominant and around first step of Dominant harmonic functions. Three tracks in a row, of which the first and third I begin, and the second you start
