TRIAD QUILT (Fast ii-V7-I-VI7 Helixes)
In this short study I want to demonstrate how we can apply the techniques and concepts presented in my book Triad Quilt (volume 1 & 2) to build interesting ii-V7-I-VI7 phrases at faster tempos.
These triadic helixes are among some of the best tools we have for the swift adaptation a melodic line needs to undertake in order to fluently traverse through the sharp twists and turns of a chord progression at fast and burning tempos.
To simplify things all seven (4 measure) phrases included in this study are presented over a ii-V7-I-VI7 progression in the key of C major. However, once you get an idea as to how these lines are constructed I encourage you to experiment with building your own and taking them through all 12 keys.
The extraction of the triadic helixes will come from the major scale over the ii-7 and Imaj7 chords and the melodic minor scale over the altered dominants which function as the V7 and VI7 chords. Specific and in-detail instructions are included with each example.
The accompanying video contains all triadic helixes performed at tempo and then slowed down.
