This third book presents inversions of triads and 7th chords, major and minor 6ths, diminished 7ths and accompaniment patterns for 6/8 time. Folk songs, hymns and other familiar melodies are used as illustrations.
Ear training is to be encouraged. A very desirable side-effect of study in this book is to implant the sound of major, minor, augmented, 6th, 7th, and diminished 7th into memory. Harmonic analysis if purposely avoided. It is intended that practical keyboard experience be allowed to develop prior to analytical work.« less
