  alternatives for any chord. By using three

  common tones you will learn how all chords

  are related to 7 tonal systems ( Major, Minor, Harmonic Major,

  Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor,  Diminished and Augmented

  Symmetrical Systems) regardless of the

  original key.

Pianist, Composer and Educator Ashby Anderson developed his theory of Nine Tone Scales and published his revolutionary notes as the "Diminished Augmented System of Harmony and Scales". Ashby is the first and only musician to outline the symmetric harmonic construction and systematic relationships between the Diminished and Augmented Harmonic Systems. He has defined specific 9- Tone scales as the "Complete Augmented Scale" for practical use within the 12 tone system. His understanding and detailed analysis of the

9-Tone Harmonic Matrix has opened the minds of musicians around the world to a system of harmony that's not taught in any college or university.
