Introduction to endings

Next page:
Previous page: Chord Progressions - Endings Next page: Chord Progressions - Deceptive Cadence

We have covered the basic endings in previous lessons, and/or in the Theory series. I am not going to repeat this, just point to the relevant lessons. And then we will cover some more peculiar endings.

If you do not know the authentic cadence in full close and half close (the V-I and I-V endings), you have to repeat the relevant lesson. You should also know the function of the dominant 7th chord in an ending. In this progression series, you can repeat the lesson The harmonic stronghold: The V7-I progression.

You should also be familiar with the plagal cadence. There is one lesson in the Theory series and on in this Progression series.

You should also know this ending applied in chord sequences: I-IV-V-I, I-IV-V-IV-I, I-V-IV-I, and not to forget ii-V-I. And then there are some minor-endings you should know.

But then there are some more non-standard endings. We can of course not cover them all - that would be an endless series on endings. But then we are past the introduction, and you can go on to the next lesson.
