The Architecture of Music Volume 3
Book 3, The Architecture of Music - Enhanced Chord and Scale Encyclopedia for the Piano
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The Architecture of Music Volume 3 is an oddity piano chord and scale encyclopedia. It contains 10 root position and 10 negative chords and all the possible 4th-tone (add) variations of them. In all, there are 180 chords to be explored. There are 5 scales in each key and each scale contains complete lists of chords included in the book that can be played with every note, in every scale, in every key.
Negative chords are a somewhat new concept to music theory which are explained in the Chord, Scale, and Modes Lessons portion of the books' companion website: www.archofmusic.com. Negative chords are essentially the harmonic opposite of the 10 root position chords and add variations. Commonly known as 2nd inversions in traditional music theory, a negative chord naming nomenclature has been used in this book to name the negative chords in lieu of using 2nd inversion chord names to make clear the negative chord relationship between two chords including negative (add) variations.
