Two Triad Pairs found in The Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series

If you look in the Sonic Resource Guide you will find that there is 50 possible hexatonic scales and 10 possible three note pairs for any hexatonic scale. So now you see why there are 500 possible combinations. Think of the 10 possible three note pairs for any hexatonic scale as a blueprint for the different types of melodies and chords that you can create using this two pair principle.

Here’s an Analogy

To give you an analogy learning only a single two 3 note combination for a common scale would be like learning a C major scale but only playing it C,D,E,F,G,A,B and never any of the other possible combinations like C,E,G,F,A,C,B. Obviously you are missing out on a whole world of other melodic ideas not to mention the cool chords that you get from the non-tertial combinations. Of course I also haven’t even mentioned the awesome harmonic progressions that certain two three note pairs create. I hope that helps you understand why each of these combinations is important and gives you more ideas on how to use them in your compositions and improvisations.

I thought I’d do a post giving a better idea on how many two triad pairs are found in the The Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series and why I’ve given more than one 2 triad pair for any traditional scale.

How many books are going to be in this Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series

First, if I was to do all possible two triad pair combinations there would be 500 books in the The Harmonic and Melodic Equivalence Series. I’m not doing anything close to that number. Here is a break down of the books I’m doing.

- 1. All two triad combinations based on tertial possibilities which is 32 combinations.
- 2 All symmetrical combinations of non-tertial two three note pair of which would be approximately 24 books.
- 3. Finally I’m doing books that explore the non-tertial non-symmetrical combinations that I have found useful. There will be approximately 10 books in that series.
