Root-Position Triad Basics -


A triad is a chord composed of three notes stacked in thirds. The lowest note is called the root. The note a third above the root is called the third. The note a fifth above the root is called the fifth. Example

fifth third root

A triad in which the root is the lowest note is called a root-position triad. Close position indicates containment of all chord pitches within the smallest possible interval. Diatonic indicates confinement to the pitches of the prevailing key without chromatic alteration. Answers in this exercise are limited to diatonic close root-position triads. ________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Each of the notes below is the root of a triad. Draw a note a third above each root.

2. Each of the notes below is the root of a triad. Draw a note a fifth above each root.

Close Root-Position Diminished Triads I -


A root-position diminished triad is composed of three notes stacked in thirds. The interval between the bottom two notes (root and third) is a minor third (m3). The interval between the top two notes (third and fifth) is also a minor third (m3). The interval between the bottom and top notes (root and fifth) is a diminished fifth (d5). Answers in this exercise are limited to close root-position diminished triads.

In the example below, root-position triads are built on each scale degree of a C major scale. Each triad is named in accordance with two related chord identification systems. 1. The letter name of each root is combined with a chord-quality designation to form a chord symbol. 2. Roman numerals associate each scale degree with a chord quality. Chord qualities for each scale degree are consistent in all major scales: I, IV and V are major in all keys; ii, iv, and vi are minor; vii is diminished. Scale Degree C Major
