The author progressively introduces the theory behind diminished seventh and augmented chords with chord etudes and expertly arranged solos and duets interspersed. Includes exercises in reading melodic lines in the third, fourth and fifth positions as well as all chord forms in the second, third, fourth, fifth, seventh, and ninth positions. Concludes with the Cycle of Keys in fourths and fifths. Written in standard notation only.
