Answer

1. \(\left.\text{A}^♯{}^{\circ}{}\right.\), 2. \(\text{F}\)sus4, 3. \(\left.\text{B}^♭{}{+}\right.\), 4. \(\left.\text{D}^♭{}\right.\), 5. \(\text{E}\)sus2

2

Write the specified triads and sus chords.

Answer

1. \(\text{B}\)\(\text{D}\)\(\text{F}^♯\), 2. \(\text{E}\)\(\text{G}^♯\)\(\text{B}^♯\), 3. \(\text{A}^♭\)\(\text{B}^♭\)\(\text{E}^♭\), 4. \(\text{C}^♯\)\(\text{E}^♯\)\(\text{G}^♯\), 5. \(\text{D}\)\(\text{G}\)\(\text{A}\), 6. \(\text{F}\)\(\text{A}^♭\)\(\text{C}^♭\)

3

Analyze the following inverted triads using slash notation.

Answer

1. \(\left.\text{D}\text{m}\middle/\text{F}\right.\), 2. \(\left.\text{G}\text{m}\middle/\text{D}\right.\), 3. \(\left.\text{A}^♯{}^{\circ}{}\middle/\text{C}^{♯}\right.\), 4. \(\left.\text{F}\middle/\text{A}\right.\), 5. \(\left.\text{B}^♭{}\middle/\text{F}\right.\), 6. \(\left.\text{C}\text{m}\middle/\text{G}\right.\)

4

Write the specified inverted triads.

Answer

(lowest to highest) 1. \(\text{D}\)\(\text{G}\)\(\text{B}\), 2. \(\text{D}\)\(\text{F}^♯\)\(\text{B}\), 3. \(\text{F}\)\(\text{A}^♭\)\(\text{D}^♭\), 4. \(\text{B}^♭\)\(\text{E}\)\(\text{G}\)

5

Correct the misspelled triads. Label your corrected spelling with lead–sheet notation. All of the examples are in root position (the lowest note is the root).

Answer

1. \(\text{F}^♯\)\(\text{A}^♯\)\(\text{C}^♯\), 2. \(\text{G}\)\(\text{B}^♭\)\(\text{D}\), 3. \(\text{A}^♭\)\(\text{C}^♭\)\(\text{E}^♭\)
