The song as a sequence of progressions Almost every song in a typical jazz repertoire can be deconstructed as a series of « two-five-one ». As mentioned in the introduction, this is the key to understanding a song rather than memorizing it. A standard also typically modulates at least once to another key, the fourth and fifth being naturally the most common ones, only one alteration away from the home key. As implied in this last statement, modulations are learned in terms of intervals, regardless of the song's key. Metaphorically speaking, a song is a round trip, starting from a home key, traveling to different keys, crossing a bridge, but always returning home.

In music , the mystic chord or Prometheus chord is a six-note synthetic chord and its associated scale , or pitch collection ; which loosely serves as the harmonic and melodic basis for some of the later pieces by Russian composer Alexander Scriabin . Scriabin, however, did not use the chord directly but rather derived material from its transpositions . It consists of the pitch classes : C, F ♯ , B ♭ , E, A, D. This is often interpreted as a quartal hexachord consisting of an augmented fourth , diminished fourth, augmented fourth, and two perfect fourths . However, the chord may be spelled in a variety of ways, and it is related to other pitch collections, such as being a hexatonic subset of the Overtone scale, lacking the Perfect Fifth.
