Dear Readers!

 

How is a chord built? there are many different ways, but let’s start with the usual major and minor chords.

There are three notes in a standard major or minor chord, first the keynote, then the third tone of the scale and then the fifth!, if you know the major and minor scale, you can easily figure out which tones are included in which chord! (if not, you can read about it here, on my blog, Major Scale , Minor Scale ),

remember if you for example start with the A minor chord and then change chord, and maybe end up at C, it is still the root A, then you may find the right notes for the C, In the A minor scale! but you start from the note C (in a minor scale).

 

Triplets!

Okey, Whats a triplet?

Triplets are notated by writing the number 3 above the group of notes that will form the triplet.

3 pieces of quarter notes, (triplets compound), has the same value as 2 quarter notes (one half note), and of course 3 pieces of half notes, (triplets compound), has the same value as 2 half notes,(1 whole note) haha!

so let’s say you are going to play triplets of types 1,2,3,4 ( a whole 4/4 bar). then normally you could play 1 whole note, or 2 half notes and so on. but now you’re going to play 3 notes in the whole bar, so we know that you could play 2 half notes, and that would fill the whole bar! Then we can figure out that you also could play 3 half notes as long we make them into triplets!
