This line really made me prick up my ears. I loved the sound of the triad pairs moving in a line. Are there any other pairs that you can suggest that I can use to construct interesting sounding lines? 60 involved the tritone – to me, it seemed to hint at the “Mars” section of Holst’s Planets. I’m sure that some pairs must be more interesting than others, and that context plays a big part in why a line will sound great or not so great…. Any suggestions Tim?

Hi Hooverphonic,
Thanks for the post. Yes, I love the sound of that line as well. It is very useful. Another one that I particularly like is the b5 and #5 major triads on altered dominant chords.
I am working on a Triad Pairs Course, that will cover this subject in detail. Until then, try the “Modal Vamps” lesson video, which covers triad pairs for all of the chords in the major scale. There is a lot of potential with that material. Also try the “Line Etude Blues-Triads” lesson video for triad pairs on the blues form.
Best,
Tim.

Thanks Tim:

I apologize for needing further clarification – in LOTW 60 you’ve got a G major triad and a C# major triad against a G7(b9). What would my b5 and #5 pair be for a G altered dominant chord?

Cheers,
Ron

Hi Ron,
For a G7alt, you can use a Db major and Eb major triad. The major triads that occur on the b5 and #5 interval.
Best,
Tim.

Hmmm… I see. Makes perfect sense, sounds great, and less filling. Thanks.
