Hey guys! This is the accompanying practice exercise section for 12Tone. Totally optional, but it gives you a chance to try out some of these things for real, so give it a shot!
Today we're looking at Tonic Function. If you haven't seen the video yet, you can find it here. If you have, dive in to these questions! You can answer in the comments here or on youtube.
1) Identify the tonic function chords in each of these major keys:
2) Name the key in which the following chords have tonic function. Are there any chords that are tonic in more than one key? What do those chords have in common?
3) Identify the tonic function chords in the following progression. Do you notice anything about where those chords are placed in the progression? If you can, play through the progression on an instrument and listen for the tonic chords.
And that's it! Comment below and we'll see you next week!
