Section 9.5 Exceptions Created by Harmonic Sequences
Exceptions to the harmonic flowchart often can be explained by harmonic sequences.
The sequence is between the first two bars and the last two bars of the example.

The example below shows how these exceptions come about through harmonic sequences.
Look for harmonic sequences as a possible explanation when you encounter unusual chord progressions.
