Way back in the very first instalment of Passing Notes we looked at some basic techniques for creating deep house chords and progressions, focusing on major and minor 7 chords.

This time, we’re going to expand on that idea and look at the construction of a number of other commonly used chords. Intervals and the construction of chords In a 7 chord, the number seven refers to the use of the seventh note of the scale. Hence, a minor 7 chord is a minor triad (root, minor 3rd and 5th) with the seventh note of the minor scale played above it. This is where chords such as 9, 11, 13 and so on get their name. If we use C major as a basic example, we can see in the keyboard diagram below that the terms 9th, 11th and 13th simply refer to the second, fourth and sixth notes of the major scale, played above the octave of the root note C.

It makes sense, then, to lavish plenty of care and attention on your BVs.

Getting Started A lead vocal will ideally be delivered as expressively and freely as possible, while respecting the melody, but this isn't usually the case for BVs. Dubstep Basics.
