The Neopolitan Sixth Chord

If you want to change up your turnaround at the end of a phrase in natural minor, try this chord progression: i - N6 - i6/4 - V - i.

The Neopolitan sixth chord voicing is like placing the fourth of i in the bass of a major flat second chord (IIb) (e.g. from low to high strings in A minor: D Bb D F).

The cadential i 6/4 chord is the i chord with the fifth in the bass (e.g. from low to high in A minor: E A C E).

    1. Hello archtopnel! Sorry for the late reply. I would have to review what I played and then notate it. I may do that and provide a link to a pdf. I will let you know if and when that's available. Thanks for your interest. ~ Josh
