Elizabeth, Jeremy and Alex drove down to Indiana to see Jeremy’s Dad and his significant other. They seem to have had a nice visit. It went a bit longer than they anticipated. I was long in bed before they got home.
I had a fun chat with Matthew yesterday afternoon while Eileen and Sarah went out shopping. We have had one discussion about chords and how they work. I told him I had one more little session in mind. He said he was too tired to do it and then asked me what it would involve. I told him that if I told him we would be doing the session.
In the first session I introduced him to the concept of major, minor, diminished and augmented triads. Matthew is writing music using chords and melodies all of it vocal. The second session I introduced him to the concept of chord inversions and that all harmony is essentially tertain (composed of thirds).
