Theory: Arpeggio Insanity : Triad Combination

By NWFurK

ARPEGGIO INSANITY [FURQAN ALI SHAH] PART 1 : TRIAD COMBINATION Employing the use of two Diatonic Tertian Triadic chords over one another to create an "illusion" of an extended jazz chord. This lesson is based on the concept of playing two diatonic triad arpeggios one-over-the-other, with the first being the "Primary" triad and the other one being a "Secondary" triad.. The resultant "extended" arpeggio (formed by the combination of notes in both the triads) is represented as an extended chord of either the Primary root OR the Secondary root; whichever is easier to denote.. As "Function" chords, they are represented by the function (within the key) of the resultant arpeggio root.. For example, a C major triad (C E G) and an E minor triad (E G B) are played one-over-the-other.. The resultant arpeggio would be C E G B or Cmaj7.. Now if this could be imagined in the key of C major, it would be I-M7; whereas in the key of G major, the same arpeggio would be IV-M7 Examples in the key of C major : [ C D E F G A B C ] I C E G + D F A = D F A C E G = ii-m11 = Dm11 C E G + E G B = C E G B = I-M7 = CM7 C E G + F A C = F A C E G = IV-M9 = FM9 C E G + G B D = C E G B D = I-M9 = CM9 C E G + A C E = A C E G = vi-m7 = Am7 C E G + B D F = C D E F G B = I-M11 = CM11 ii D F A + E G B = E G B D F A = iii-m11 = Em11 D F A + F A C = D F A C = ii-m7 = Dm7 D F A + G B D = G B D F A = V-9 = G9 D F A + A C E = D F A C E = ii-m9 = Dm9 D F A + B D F = B D F A = vii-m7/b5 = Bm7/b5 D F A + C E G = D F A C E G = ii-m11 = Dm11 iii E G B + F A C = F A C E G B = IV-M11 = FM11 E G B + G B D = E G B D = iii-m7 = Em7 E G B + A C E = A C E G B = vi-m9 = Am9 E G B + B D F = E G B D F = iii-m9 = Em9 E G B + C E G = C E G B = I-M7 = CM7 E G B + D F A = E G B D F A = iii-m11 = Em11 IV F A C + G B D = G B D F A C = V-11 = G11 F A C + A C E = F A C E = IV-M7 = FM7 F A C + B D F = B D F A C = vii-m9/b5 = Bm9/b5 F A C + C E G = F A C E G = IV-M9 = FM9 F A C + D F A = D F A C = ii-m7 = Dm7 F A C + E G B = F A C E G B = IV-M11 = FM11 V G B D + A C E = A C E G B D = vi-m11 = Am11 G B D + B D F = G B D F = V-7 = G7 G B D + C E G = C E G B D = I-M9 = CM9 G B D + D F A = G B D F A = V-9 = G9 G B D + E G B = E G B D = iii-m7 = Em7 G B D + F A C = G B D F A C = V-11 = G11 vi A C E + B D F = B D F A C E = vii-m11/b5 = Bm11/b5 A C E + C E G = A C E G = vi-m7 = Am7 A C E + D F A = D F A C E = ii-m9 = Dm9 A C E + E G B = A C E G B = vi-m9 = Am9 A C E + F A C = F A C E = IV-M7 = FM7 A C E + G B D = A C E G B D = vi-m11 = Am11 vii B D F + C E G = C D E F G B = I-M11 = CM11 B D F + D F A = B D F A = vii-m7/b5 = Bm7/b5 B D F + E G B = E G B D F = iii-m9 = Em9 B D F + F A C = B D F A C = vii-m9/b5 = Bm9/b5 B D F + G B D = G B D F = V-7 = G7 B D F + A C E = B D F A C E = vii-m11/b5 = Bm11/b5 For further explanation, feedback and/or suggestions please write in to me at: furqan84@hotmail.com Thank You
