Evolution of The Concept

Does anyone have access to the first edition of Russell's book? I have some questions about how it differed from the current version.

Maybe. Did the first edition have the same scalar organization as the 4th edition (lydian, lydian aug, lydian dim, etc.)? Was the gravity order the same? (I,V,II,VI,III,VII,+IV,+V,bIII,bVII,bII)?

Does this chart help you choose from among possible scales when you encounter a certain interval in a melody? Is that it's purpose?


Side note: the typewriter font/formatting really makes you appreciate the bobappleton-ized 4th edition!

Thanks motherlode.

What you have shared with me has answered my question about the degree to which the first edition differs from the 4th and has made me realize that I need to get my hands on the first edition to do what I am trying to do.

Does anyone know of a library that has the first edition?

I rearranged the chart you posted so that the intervals appear in the order of a ladder of fifths. It's cool to see in the Lydian section how there is an order to which MG's contain the intervals.

The Motherlode Challenge

Postby chespernevins » Fri Sep 18, 2009 4:04 pm

I was going to hold on to this until I figure out how to get the colors, but what the heck.

I put together the Tonal Gravity Chart based on the new edition. I call it "The Motherlode Challenge"... to sing it from memory, that is....

Ok, but how cool is THIS....

So I sit around for a year debating spending the cash on Sibelius, Finale, etc. It never seems like a good time. And just recently I come across...

MUSE SCORE

OMG!!! It's free! It works! I used it to make this chart. :D

Woah, that really is interesting how the consonant nucleus section is symmetrical like that.

Whoops... Found a typo in my Tonal Gravity Chart. Am taking it down right now. Will edit and have it back up later today.
