The first five notes in the series are the root, octave, perfect 5th above that, higher octave of the root, and a major third above that. Not only are those the exact notes of a major chord, but they are a rather nicely voiced major chord (lots of space in the bass with octaves, followed by a close triad).
To me, this can’t just be a coincidence—music, to some extent, must be our brains deconstructing the harmonic series and then playing with it over time.
Does anyone have any insight into this? Is it something that has been written about/ever talked about in courses you’ve taken?
If you're just starting to learn how to play jazz, the sheer number of tunes you're expected to know how to play can seem a little overwhelming, as can all of the different recordings you need to be aware of of each tune. I've put together a list of 25 jazz standards you need to learn, ordered roughly from tunes with the simplest harmonic relationships, and getting increasingly harmonically complex, as well as a playlist where I've suggested 5 different recordings of each tuneto check out. Here is a link to that playlist. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ12xkgS35S8jQpPK5QlrDVafi_GbtJkP
I'm also going to give you a brief analysis of the chord progression to each tune.
First, a definition is in order. When I say jazz standards, what I mean is the body of tunes written by non-jazz musician, pop songwriters, generally for either broadway or hollywood musicals, from roughly the 1920s-50s, which were then picked up by jazz musicians as familiar vehicles over which to improvise. These are pop tunes with lyrics, which the general audience at the time would have been familiar with. This body of tunes is also commonly reffered to as "The Great American Songbook." I'll be doing another video with a list of 25 important instrumental jazz tunes to learn, where I'll go over that other important body of work, instrumental compositions by jazz musicians, which we also need to know plenty of.
So why do we need to learn all these old tunes? There are a couple of very important reasons. Number one, these tunes are the common language that we use to improvise over. If you're at a jazz jam session anywhere in the world, you should be able to call any of these tunes, and even if you've never met the musicians you're playing with, because you all know these tunes, you can instantly start making music and communicating with each other. Number two, these tunes teach us so much about harmony. All of the cool harmonic moves that you could ever want to know about are built right into these songs, both the original chord progressions and the common practice jazz reharmonizations of them. Also, the more of these tunes you learn, the easier it gets to learn more of them, because you start to really see and understand the common patterns which come up over and over again in tune after tune.
A quick note on how I selected these recordings. Obviously, they have to currently, as of October 2020 when I'm making this video, be... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just do your regular harmonic, and push the string on the same spot you played the note (like you would bend a regular note), and there you have it
I don't know if this is common knowledge but it's pretty cool
Write-in choices are also welcome, since I ran out of options for the poll.
What is harmonic rhythm and what does it tell you about chord changes during a chord progression? Harmonic rhythm is all about when and how often chords change in a piece. Sometimes the harmonic rhythm is slow; at other times it moves quickly. This all makes a difference to the emotional impact of a piece of music. As performers we need to be aware of the speed of harmonic rhythm and of any patterns being used. We also need to be aware of changes in the pace of harmonic rhythm. As composers and arrangers harmonic rhythm is an important factor to consider in the music we write as erratic harmonic rhythm can have a detrimental impact on the outcome. For analysts, harmonic rhythm is one of the issues that needs to be under discussion. So watch this music composition lesson to be fully tuned in to harmonic rhythm - what it is and how it works.

If she equips Hardy Bearing SS, then uses her harmonic skill, her vantage (buff) is neutralized during combat.
It's not just equippable skills (Urvan, desperation, vantage, etc.)
Next week's bonus titles for RB are Echoes and RD. Assuming IS wants to cover all the games first, the Harmonic will not be from RD because there's already Summer Mia. That leaves Echoes. The games remaining that have not yet a harmonic hero are: 1. Echoes 2. Genealogy 3. Thracia 4. Binding Blade 5. Sacred Stones 6. PoR 7. Three Houses 8. TMS
Also I unironically want more TMS units.
EDIT: Apparently IS says shut the fuck up we're going to overlap RD. Well time to ignore this horribly aged post then, lmao
I thought this just happened a few years ago? Why is it happening again?
See my other post for how I came to this question:
