The volumes in the Mapping Tonal Harmony collection have been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of these books is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing, and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.These workbooks are based on the map used in the Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro app by mDecks Music, which is recommended as accompanying material/tool for all volumes.All maps, progression examples and exercises in these books, were designed to improve and expand the student?s view of the harmonic surroundings around each and every tonal center. The volumes in this collection are organized in a progressive manner, each volume expanding the previous volume's map by introducing new harmonic concepts and/or functions, based on the premise that all functions introduced in earlier volumes have been understood and assimilated. Each new concept or function adds some level of detail to the map and/or extends the known area around the tonic.Many of the concepts presented in these books are simply mentioned for mapping purposes only, and should be carefully studied by using other sources such as: a harmony course, tonalharmony books, teachers, etc.Voice-leading and inversions are not covered in these volumes since their main objective is to map essential harmonic functions in every key.Vol. 1The basic major & minor diatonic neighborhoodsTonic - Sub-Dominant - Dominant. Basic harmonic progressions.Perfect Authentic Cadence (PAC). The use of V7 vs. V as a triad. Standard/Basic Harmonic Progressions in the nearby diatonic neighborhood. Use of the Tonic- Subdominant - Dominant - Tonic progressions.Progression over the Circle of Fifths: vi-ii-V-ISubstitution: IVMaj7 in place of IIm7Vol. 2Mapping IIIm , I64, V7sus4 and deceptive cadencesThe complete diatonic neighborhood for Major-MinorDeceptive and Plagal Cadences.The IIIm (ambiguous chord : Tonic vs. Dominant).Cadential I64 or I/5, Im64 or Im/5 and the V7sus4: all preceding the V7.Borrowing chords from other modesVol. 3More harmonic progressions and cadences in the diatonic neighborhoodMapping the SubV7 and its use as a Neapolitan chordInverted bass and bass lines. Pedal points: Tonic Pedal and Dominant Pedal.Backward progressions and other progressions outside the circle of fifths.The half cadence to V7 without secondary dominants.The Neapolitan Sixth Chord (bII/3 or N6) and the SubV7 (bII7).Vol. 4Basic Secondary dominants and their related IIm7V7/x, viio7/x, IIm7/xBasic Secondary functions.
