Gospel School: Major-Minor Mixture

The simultaneous mixture of major and minor tonalities is a big part of the Gospel Vocabulary…

Study-Practice Notes:

  • Don’t fuss over the names of the chords.
  • Don’t try to explain these delicious gospel patterns using classical musical theory.
  • Is the first chord a Cm7? How about Eb/C? Who cares?
  • DO use your knowledge of scales and chords to decode and encode the patterns by sound, visio-spatial layout on the keyboard, and physical execution for all keys your want to master.

LIKES matter! Thanks and peace from Frank
