Over the years I consistently hear from my students, "I know all my triads" and,
"I know all my major scales". After closer examination, it often turns out that, for many developing sax players, this means root position triads (or 7th chords) and Ionian modes.

This exercise should really help improve both ones harmonic knowledge of the major scale (in every key) and your ability to hear, play, visualize and spell all the diatonic 1st inversion triads found within a major scale.

Here's a link to the PDF and youtube clip:

Cool! I've been wondering slightly about this recently actually. Will definitely shed in a couple of minutes.
