Voice Leading Part XXII - with chromatic passing tones



This also applies to minor keys (also all modes).
The next examples are with C Harmonic Minor.



Chromatic passing tones are notes outside of the scale - non diatonic.
Adds nice color and tension to voice leading.




Contrary Motion:

If the bass moves up - the treble moves down.
If the bass moves down - the treble moves up.
There will be passing tones from chord to chord. (notes from the scale)
More on this later.

This also applies to minor keys (also all modes).The next examples are with C Harmonic Minor.

Chromatic passing tones are notes outside of the scale - non diatonic.
Adds nice color and tension to voice leading.

Normal Progression:
Find common tone and move other voices scale wise.

First examples will all be in C harmonic minor (3 note chords) using Normal Progressions:
Ascending chord progressions. (notes are written lowest tone on left to highest tone on right)
These chords are all created from the C Harmonic Minor Scale: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, B, C.
