MODAL X-ING (3 Note Harmonic Fractals) Harmonic Triangulation + backing track
In this chapter of the Modal Crossing concept development I will be exploring yet another possible way in which we can extract interesting three note chordal textures from the major scale and its modes.
Here we will be concentrating in possible harmonic textures produced by the combination of the Left and Central elements of the scale only.
The first formula will be Central, Central, Left and the second one will be Left, Left, Central.
Each one of the two formulas will have three variations of HARMONIC TRIANGULATIONS as the highest note in the three note voicing can change strings and physically be positioned on the other two of the three participating strings in the subset.
As the six strings of the guitar can be divided into four groups of adjacent three string sets we will end up with 12 possible “3 note harmonic fractals” in each mode position.
The resulting chordal textures are a great tool that can be used in situations where you want to color and explore a certain harmony in a more detailed way. They are also great vehicles for connecting different positions of the fretboard in a harmonic passage and serve as a wonderful technical workout and fretboard visualization exercise.
All exercises presented in the key of F Major.
