Misc. Comments

Editor’s notes: Polychords are common in modern Jazz and refer to a chord built by putting a triad over a tritone. The root is frequently missing or played by the bass, thus polychords are considered rootless. One interesting feature of a Polychord is to blurr the tonality by creating tension and energy which need to be relaxed. This leads to interesting developments of the music. The purpose of this study is to provide practical examples of developments generated by polychords. The chords in the sequences are named by their numeral position in the scale. I = 1st scale’s note, II = 2nd scales’note etc… This is useful when transposing the examples into different keys. The player is encouraged to explore by his own the possibilities of polychords.
