A Guide to Mastering Fourths/Fifths (12-Tone Row) by Wesley Chin

 

The sound of fourths and fifths has always been intriguing to me, especially when used to create tension or take a line "outside" the chord changes. (Eric Alexander, Kenny Garrett, Eddie Harris, Michael Brecker, etc) This PDF is a guide containing exercises and etudes to help you master fourths and fifths on your instrument and how to construct different 12-tone row patterns. The PDF features:

  • Perfect Fourth exercises around half steps and whole steps

  • 2-chorus etude over the changes of "This I Dig" with an in-depth analysis of the concepts used (fourths/fifths, 12-tone row, melodic cells, bebop language, etc)
