Harmony – Part 1
To be able to develop your own stylish piano arrangements from songs you first need a good fundamental knowledge
of harmony. We will work step by step through this chapter on elementary basic principles.
Diatonic harmony
By “diatonic harmony“, we mean the chords that can be created using the notes of the normal major scales. We
will start with the key of C major and the accompanying C major scale:

If you form a four-part chord with each note, or each step (scale degree), of the normal major scale you get the
following chords:

Steps (scale degrees) in Roman numerals
Almost all the chords that you need, to play popular songs, are at your disposal in the major scales. To understand
them better, let’s look at which chords are on which step (scale degree).
Step
I + IV
II, III + VI V
VII
Type of Chord
Major7 chord (= major triad with major seventh)
Minor7 chord (= minor triad with minor seventh)
Dominant seventh chord (= major triad with minor seventh)
Half diminished chord (consists of two minor and one major third)

We’ll practice what we just learned with the song “Oh, Lady Be Good”. If you bought a songbook in which you
have only the melody and chord symbols to work on, the song would be notated as in the above lead sheet.
Parts of the melody can be played very well with the fourth sixth chords of the major scale. Because the piece is
in the key of Gmaj, we need the chords from the G major scale:

Harmony – Part 4
Altering notes
Single notes of a chord can be raised or lowered a half-tone. In technical jargon we call this “alteration”. In
this chapter, for the time being, we want to concentrate on the altered fifth of the chord. A lowering of the fifth
is shown by the sign “b” before the number (b5) and sometimes with a minus sign before the number (-5). An
example:
D m7b5
& b wwww
G 7#5 fifth is notated with a sharp sign before the number (#5), or with a plus sign before the number (+5).
The D
raised
m7b5
Sometimes we see a plus sign without a number after the chord symbol (e.g. “G+”). The raising of the fifth in the
dominant seventh chord adds a wonderfully
new tone color to the music, very popular among cocktail pianists.
G7#5
Therefore we want to examine this altered dominant chord more closely. A G7 chord with a raised fifth looks like
this:

Certainly the most attractive fill for many pianists is inventing his own little melody. The question naturally arises,
which notes can I play and how can I best put them together? The last example shown on page 39 already gives us
an indication: The notes of the triad in the right hand have been separated into single notes and played one after
another. A variation of the melody fill exists therefore in the use of the single notes of a chord.
Fill / minor7th chord
Let’s take a Dm7 chord:
D m7
D m7
& wwww
&Dwwwwm7
&Dwwwwm7
In a Dm7 chord there is, apart from the root “D”, an F major triad:

The three notes of the F major triad lend themselves very well to playing a fill with a Dm7 so we want to practice

this extensively. Every one of the following examples consists of three exercises, each with two bars. In the examples 14a – 14c we will practice the fills in an ascending movement, while the examples 15a – 15c are given in
a descending movement. Furthermore, in each case the examples are printed in three keys.

Typical Harmony Sequences – Part 1
If you analyze the songs of popular music, you will often find the same, or rather similar harmony sequences
(cadences). If you know these (and can master them and play them well) your own interpretation of songs will be
much easier.
Chord insertions – Part 1
Typical harmony sequences are often already notated in a lead sheet. If such cadences are not already available,
these can be created through inserting additional chords later and therefore enriching the song harmonically.
Let’s assume we would find in the music score a C major chord that was in three consecutive bars (key of Cmaj,
Ist scale degree):
C
C
C
The first alternative (in order to avoid boredom) would be to insert just one chord, for instance the dominant:
1st variation
C
G7
C
Instead of the dominant you could insert a sus chord
2nd variation
C
F/G (Gsus4)
C
These two variations have already been practically implemented in “’S Wonderful” (page 50 bars 15–17) with the
chords Eb, Ab/Bb and Eb.
With cocktail piano, the dominant with the raised fifth also fits nicely:
3rd variation
C
G7#5
C
If you have one and the same chord over a longer period of time you can, of course insert more chords. So our
three bars of Cmaj can be augmented with a II. and V. scale degree:
4th variation
I
II
V
I
C
Dm7
G7
C
In addition to the II. and V. scale degree, the VI. Scale degree could also be inserted:
5th
variation
I
VI
II
V
I
C
Am7
Dm7
G7
C
It is a matter of personal taste as to which of the five variations are employed. You must consider, however, that
the melody must fit with the newly inserted chords. If this isn’t the case, melodies can be modified and made to
fit in.

Swanee River
Swanee River is one of those songs that display, in it’s original, a very simple harmony, as the lead sheet shows:

The song is in the key of C major and in the original version, uses the chords of the I., IV. and V. degrees. The obvious suggestion, therefore, is to insert the new harmony sequences from the previous chapter. Although there
are only 16 bars in the complete piece, you can use this harmony sequence several times. If you analyse “Swanee
River”, you will find the harmonic sequences from the I., IV. and I. degrees altogether four times, in the bars 1–3,
5–7, 10–12 and 13–15:
I
VI
I
C
F
C
Transformed into the typical harmony sequence, the three bar cadence looks like the following:

Besides inserting the typical harmony sequence, we will also insert (in bars 3 and 4) a VI chord and a II chord
converted into a dominant (compare “Typical Harmony Sequences – Part 2”, explanation to the variation No. 5,
pages 89–90):

If you notate all of the explained chord augmentations in the music, the lead sheet will look much more interesting:

with the new additional chords.

Please note:
This PDF file contains practice examples from the book in all keys, except for the keys already printed in the
book. The sequence of the examples correspond with the topics addressed in the book. Because the notes of
the G flat major scale and the F sharp major scale are essentially the same, we’ve omitted the F sharp major key
in the PDF file.
