My latest book focuses mostly on the things that are really worth knowing, not so much on the rest. To do this, the first column we used in this step, E, will be moved to the final column of the table. These have Roman numerals, why is explained below.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between G and B is 4 half-tones. It works for any genre, but especially well for EDM, hip hop, modern pop, trance, trap, drum and bass, and chill productions. Three-note chords For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between C# and E is 3 half-tones. To do this, the first column we used in this step, G#, will be moved to the final column of the table. The Lesson steps then explain the triad chord construction from this mode, and how to name the quality of each chord based on note intervals. The table below shows the mixolydian mode, ordered to show the 5th note as the first column in the table. To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes A, C, and E. For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between A and C is 3 half-tones. The mixolydian chord iiio is the B diminished chord, and contains the notes B, D, and F. This mediant chord's root / starting note is the 3rd note (or scale degree) of the mixolydian mode. Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between F# and C# is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). Theoretical explanation. The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore major, also called M3 for short. Some chord progressions including extended Mixolydian based chords: C7 - D9 - Bmaj7 - Fmaj7 (C Mixolydian) Am7 - Cmaj7 - D7 (D Mixolydian) E7 - Amaj7 - D6 (E Mixolydian) Dm7 - Em7 - G7 (G Mixolydian) Dmaj7 - F#m7 - A7 (A Mixolydian) See also Dorian mode chord chart the 1st, 3rd and 5th positions relative to that 2nd root note. In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols v: So in this key, v6 refers to the B minor chord in 1st inversion, and v64 refers to the B minor chord in 2nd inversion. And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, E, onto this quality, giving us the E major chord. Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is A minor chord in 2nd inversion - mixolydian mode chord iic. Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between E and B is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). To do this, the first column we used in this step, D, will be moved to the final column of the table. More details of this interval are at C#-perf-5th. To do this, the first column we used in this step, A, will be moved to the final column of the table. For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between E and G# is 4 half-tones. This completes the set of all triad chords that harmonize with the mixolydian mode. Find out more. The table below shows the E mixolydian mode, ordered to show the 3rd note as the first column in the table. The diminished symbol 'o' is placed after the roman numerals to indicate this is a diminished chord. The mixolydian chord ii is the A minor chord, and contains the notes A, C, and E. This supertonic chord's root / starting note is the 2nd note (or scale degree) of the mixolydian mode. The triad chord will be built using only the notes of the mode we are interested in. It is in upper case to denote that the chord is a major chord. The roman numeral for number 2 is 'ii' and is used to indicate this is the 2nd triad chord in the mode. And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, D, onto this quality, giving us the D minor chord. The chord symbol vi could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is C# minor chord in root position (ie not inverted) - E mixolydian mode chord via. It is in lower case to denote that the chord is a minor chord. This step shows the white and black note names on a piano keyboard so that the note names are familiar for later steps, and to show that the note names start repeating themselves after 12 notes. E Mixolydian is the fifth mode of the A major scale; E Mixolydian Scale Notes: E F# G# A B C# D; Mixolydian Scale Formula: 1 2 3 4 5 6 b7; Mixolydian Scale Intervals: W W H W W H W Instead, iiio could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is B diminished chord in 1st inversion - mixolydian mode chord iiiob. The table below shows the mixolydian mode, ordered to show the 6th note as the first column in the table. In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols IV: So in this key, IV6 refers to the A major chord in 1st inversion, and IV64 refers to the A major chord in 2nd inversion. The chord symbol VII could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is D major chord in root position (ie not inverted) - E mixolydian mode chord VIIa. The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. The table below shows the E mixolydian mode, ordered to show the 2nd note as the first column in the table. And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, G, onto this quality, giving us the G major chord. The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. Instead, I could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is G major chord in 1st inversion - mixolydian mode chord Ib. Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between A and E is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5).
