Hi, after attending a class in modern harmony during this last months, I have some questions about the embellishments and chords used in a contemporary composition in A dorian, which is a little bit tricky for me. You can find the score attached to this message.
Bar 3: how do you explain the b in the melody?
Bar 5: why did the author choose a Fmaj7? Maybe he wanted to have a bass going down by step (from F# to F to E)?
Bar 9: is the f# in the melody a passing note? Do you think that the following d is an anticipation?
Bar 10: what is the semiquaver b in the melody?
Bar 11: what is the semiquaver g# in the melody? Maybe just an add#9?
Bars 20-21: how would you explain the Vmin7-IIImaj7 chord sequence?
Bar 23: what are the notes used in the melody?
Bar 27-28: why did he use IImaj6-IIIm7 (that, at least in classical harmony, is quite rare)?
I really need to know at least a few answers, so I would be very thankful if you can help me.
