Hi,

I was listening to Mark Levy's excellent lesson recordings on shuffle the other day and was enthralled by Ted discussing "Movie Chords" as a tangent of some harmonic matter. Sadly, I can't remember for the life of me which lesson it was - does anyone know of the top of their head?

Are there any lesson sheets on this area of harmony?

Many thanks

Hello lizzardhands,  Ted did not write any sheets on "movie chords" or that style of harmony.  However, much of the "movie" harmony Ted loved was inspired by Debussy, Ravel, etc. on through the early 1900's.   Aaron Copeland actually scored some films, if you can find them.   But Max Steiner was Ted's favorite.
Just listening to the underscore was inspirational for Ted, he would transcribe some little phrases he loved, and get ideas from them.  As for examples, here are a few for you.  Hope these give you some idea anyway.   Barbara
