Going Beyond the Circle of Fifths | Creative Progressions

Today, let's put some vertical structures through the various root cycles (RCs). You'll see that it's a lot of fun to do that and it even leads to unique and interesting musical results.

The Circle of Fifths is a great tool for composers, especially if you want to create music that resonates with the Western culture. It helps establish a strong connection and harmonic progression. However, it's important to know that there are other root cycles you can explore.

Have you ever considered looking into these alternative root cycles? They offer different tonal possibilities and can add a unique flavor to your compositions. For example, the RC4, RC3, and RC2 root cycles can sound great with various chord structures.

By expanding your knowledge beyond the Circle of Fifths, you open yourself up to a wider range of musical ideas and possibilities. It allows you to break away from conventional patterns and explore new harmonic relationships.

Best always,
