The App that will help you to master extended chords; the 9th, 11th and the 13th chords. ‘Chord & Triad Part II’ assists in improving the level of harmony, improvisation and aural skills.

Most chords are constructed with additional notes of odd number of scale degrees or steps. e.g. 1,3,5,7,9,11,13. The first three notes (1,3,5) are called ‘triad’, which is the skeleton of the chord. Triad is a very important clue as to what the chord is.

The more notes stacked above a triad, the richer the quality of the sound and the music becomes euphonious.

Full understanding of triads and intervals is fundamental to be able to build a chord. (Check the app ‘Interval Table’ and ‘Chord & Triad’ for fundamentals of intervals and triads)
