This video covers the basics of harmony, including how to create chords and how to progress through them using different notes. The author also discusses how to use passing notes and secondary chords to create more interesting harmony.
00:00:00 In this video, the author provides a brief refresher on music theory and then demonstrates how to find chords based on the triad structure of the scale. The author then demonstrates a melody in the key of C major and works out how to harmonize it using chords from the triad structure.
00:05:00 In this video, the author explains how conventional harmony works and how to harmonize a note using three chords. In order to harmonize a note, you always find three chords that will fit it. Chords I, IV and VI are always major chords, while chords II, III and VII are minor chords. Chords IV, VI and VII are also diminished chords. The author recommends using chord I in a piece since it is the first chord of the music.
00:10:00 The video covers the basics of harmony, including the difference between chords and triads, and how to arrange chords in various ways. The first chord is written C, E, G, but it is not the only chord possible. The video goes on to explain how to create different chords by rearranging the notes of the first chord. The most common chords are chords I, IV, and V, which are called the primary triads. Secondary chords include minor and diminished chords, which are less common. The video finishes with a discussion of inversion, which is the most likely chord to be used less frequently.
00:15:00 In this video, the author teaches how to create harmony in music by explaining how chords work and progressing through them using the example of a song. He demonstrates how chords can be created using different notes, how they can be inessential or passing notes, and how they can be used to build a melody.
00:20:00 In this video, the author discusses the different types of harmony and how they are used in music. He discusses the different types of cadences and how to make them.
00:25:00 In this music theory video, the author explains how to create harmony using inessential notes, or passing notes that do not belong to the chord. He gives an example of how to do this using chords IV and II, and then goes on to explain how to fill in the missing notes.
00:30:00 In this video, the author discusses the chords needed in a chord progression from IV to II. He explains that the chords need a D, an A, and an F, and suggests using an F instead of a G in the tenor part. He also discusses the second inversion chords, IVc and Ic, and how they affect the harmonic progression.
00:35:00 This music theory video covers the use of second inversion chords, which are chords that are built using the notes of a major scale but with the second note of the scale reversed. The chords discussed are Ic, V and II7. The video finishes with a discussion of the use of a chord F in the position of V7.
00:40:00 In this video, the author shows how to create a chord using the V7 chord. He first shows how to write a chord in Roman numerals, and then shows how to create the chord using the V7 chord. The author also explains how an accented passing note is stronger than an unaccented passing note.
00:45:00 This YouTube video discusses how to use chords in music, specifically how to convert triads into chords that will fit the melody. The video goes over different chord progressions, demonstrating how they sound and how often they are used. It also covers how to create a harmonic rhythm, which is the underlying musical rhythm.
00:50:00 In this video, the author shows how to write harmony using secondary chords. He starts by explaining how primary chords are made up of two chords and then goes on to show how to write harmony using secondary chords. He also discusses how to use passing notes and upper or lower auxiliary notes in order to make chords more interesting.
