Quick Win #47

2-Chord Connections over an RP

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • a very efficient way to create a more mainstream sound out of any random RP is to use a 2-chord connection that follows the authentic cadence
  • your treble structure may also consist of two parts only; even the OI of your chord will work
  • dominant scales are great to let the energy keep flowing


You decide how complex your structures will be. It works equally well with triads or 13th chords. As usual, we suggest you start simple first and build complexity when needed. Also, orchestrating the bass section differently from the treble can help create more transparency.
