Exercises 22.8 Practice Exercises¶
Determining Diatonic Common Chords. For each of the two keys in each example, list the diatonic chords as lead-sheet symbols and as Roman numerals then circle those diatonic to both keys
Referring to the Harmonic Flowchart, fill in lead-sheet symbols, Roman numerals, and Harmonic Functions for the following example—be sure to put some of the chords in first inversion for variety; create a melody by adding embellishments (non-chord tones) and try to create repeating motives and/or subphrases; LSS stands for lead-sheet symbols, RN stands for Roman numerals, and HF stands for Harmonic Function
List the four chromatic mediants for each chord.
Fm: Am, A♭m, Dm, D♭m
D♭: F♭, F, B♭, B𝄫 (or A, enharmonically)
G: B♭, B, E, E♭
G♯m: Bm, B♯m, Em, E♯m
Analyze lead-sheet symbols, motives (with numbers, noting melodic alteration when it occurs), non-chord tones, Roman numerals, and harmonic function.
Compose an eight-measure example using the motivic structure and harmonic function in the example above. Create a new melody with new motives but the same sequence of motives. You may use a different time signature, mode, and accompanimental texture.
