Melodic Minor Composition: Seventh Chord Application

Part Two:

  • Example 1). Example one uses a progression from Melodic Minor [00:32]
  • Example 2). This example adds 7th quality chord resolutions [05:43]

Example three adds more unique chord types across the harmony of, “Melodic Minor.” This includes the highly dissonant I-chord of, “Minor /Major 7.” The melody targets the chord tones once again playing a big role in how the chords are attended to within these compositions.

Example four combines common chord types into the progression through Minor 7 and Dominant 7th chords. When constructing melodies or building chord changes for these progressions, we need to address how the melody interacts to chords.
