-Lesson 60: Diatonic Sequence
The sequence outlines the main seven chords found in the major scale (in the key of C: Fmaj, B-7b5, E-7, A-7, D-7, G7, Cmaj); the root motion moves in diatonic fourths. I’ve found this exercise to be very melodic and yet strangely challenging to memorize and play technically.
To expand on this melody, try playing the material in smaller phrases, perhaps just outlining one or two of the chords. Also, changing the rhythm in a variety of ways should help the material become a more creative part of your vocabulary.
