Turnarounds

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Lowercase = minor
Uppercase = Major
small circle o = diminished

The chords in C Major are as follows:

I = C ii = Dm iii = Em IV = F V = G vi = Am vii = Bo or Bdim

Changing the Lowercase to Uppercase gives

I = C IV = F V = G

We can also have the following

I = C IV = F V = G

Turnarounds can use any ONE SET of the above or a mixture of all three sets.

1) The turnaround is usually used in bars 11 and 12 to take you home ( tonic resolution V7-->I).

2) They can also be used to replace extended durations of the Tonic ( ex. 2 or 4 bars of the I chord)

3) The V(Dominant 7 = V7) or bII is usually the last chord of the turnaround.
