I'm useless at harmony so:
What is an inverted perfect cadence? Are there any other variations of cadences like this?
Also if i'm shown a 2nd inversion minor chord, in order to discover that its minor do i just put it back into its root position form so i can see/work out more easily? (same with any other inversion of any kind of chord, that was just an example ie. if it's augmented in root its also an augmented chord if its muddled up into inversions?)
What are errors in voice leading/doubling that I could look out for? (not in my own writing - a question i'm being asked is to find faults in an already written part, not 100% what im looking for)
I think that's all for now
Inverted perfect is where one or more of the chords in the cadence are in an inversion
I can't see any problem with putting an inverted chord into root position in order to work out what it is, as long as you remember to write down the inversion as well
inverting it doesn't change the actual chord, so there shouldn't be any problem
for the errors in voice leading/doubling, you can have parallel octaves/5ths, chords missing notes, chords in root position doubling the 3rd, hidden 5ths and part crossing
i think there are others that were on the first mock that I can't remember though..
hope this is all right, as that's what I've been putting in my papers
good luck with the exam!
