Victoria was very curious. She wanted to know how to play a cadence in G major with chords I-V6-I-IV6-I64-V-V7-I.
My hands were visible at the keyboard. I played really slow but she kept asking me what the notes of the chords were.
I thought this will be helpful for others who are beginners at harmony.
Here they are (starting from the bass up):
G-B-D-G, F#-A-D-A, G-B-D-G, E-C-G-C, D-D-G-B, D-D-F#-A, D-C-F#-A and G-G-B-G.
Happy practicing and remember...
Organ takes you beyond reality.
Practice transposing the above cadences by Endre Zsasskovszky major 2nd upward to the key of D major this way:
5. Soprano and Alto
6. Soprano and Tenor
7. Soprano and Bass
8. Alto and Tenor
9. Alto and Bass
10. Tenor and Bass
11. Soprano, Alto, and Tenor
12. Soprano, Alto, and Bass
13. Soprano, Tenor, and Bass
14. Alto, Tenor, and Bass
15. Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass
Take a slow tempo, aim for smooth legato touch and 3 correct repetitions in a row in each step.
