  • Sucks that this all has to be read backwards...

  • This chord is spelt according to it's resolution, as it can resolve to 4 different harmonies. C - Eb - Gb- Bbb would normally resolve to a Db chord. When looking at these intervals as a melodic interval in a monophonic structure, I suppose this isn't too important. The only difference would probably be that the M6 skip would resolve down by a major 2nd and the d7 would resolve down by a minor 2nd.

  • Oh, I found out how to look at older notes! I had to comment about this d7 versus the natural 6th, and I'm assuming that "Major sixth" was meant. A d7 is different than a M6 in it's function. For example, C to A is a M6. Assuming that they're all harmonic tones, and ignoring 9th, 11th, and 13th chords for simplicity, this will be present in IV, iv, or ii7 (or V7/V) harmonies. If we have C - B-double flat, this will only be found in a fully diminished 7th chord.
