Musical harmony has to do with the study of chords and the relationships among them. To understand the harmony it is essential to understand music as a language. Since we are talking about the study of chords, it is important to understand that they are the chords. These are multiple sounds simultaneously. The simplest expression is through triads which are made by three sounds. There are 4 types of triads: – major triads – minor triads – augmented triads – diminished triads below is an example with the c major scale in the Pentagram and are going to use to explain the four types of triads. We are going to add two sounds for each height extra. We have the first sound as a basis the following sounds are the upper third and fifth above respectively.
The triads major major triads are for this example Do Fa y Sol. A major triad is composed of your base to a third higher, which should be a major third (OJ my). And its base to a fifth higher, this should give a perfect fifth (do sol). Any chord that consists of one major third and a perfect fifth higher, these are major chords. The triad minor d minor minor and a minor. For these chords should be a minor third (re fa) from its base and a perfect fifth (re the).
Triads diminished if dim must be a minor third (if re) and a fifth declined relative to its base (if fa). Augmented triad for the larger scale there is a chord therefore increased, it will be as an example by altering one of these notes with the chord of OJ. As shown has a major third relative to its base (OJ my) and a fifth increased relative to its base (do sol #). Following example this representation of grades with Roman numerals, note that for older chords are represented in uppercase and lowercase minors accompanied with a letter m, as well as for the if diminished chord is represented with the abbreviation dim or with a small circle in the top right of the letter of the chord.
