Harmonic Major Scale | Diatonic Chords

Completing my previous blog posts about diatonic chords in the major scale, harmonic minor scale and  jazz melodic minor scale  this Keynote presentation deals with the Harmonic Major Scale and its diatonic chords. The scale- and chord diagrams were created with the fonts Chords and Scales. No images or shapes were used.

Create diatonic seventh chords in a harmonic major scale by just shifting the root of each seventh chord up a diatonic second.
