C Major Harmonized Scale

Harmonized scales are just that. The individual tones each stacked with additional tones from the same scale to produce chordal sounds that are consistent with the respective scale. The notes are generally stacked in thirds. The diagrams below represent the harmonized scale with triads, in root and other inversions. If you visually combine the diagrams you can see how the full chords are constructed.

Please look at the table below and see the notes that are used to harmonize the C Major scale with triads. Each horizontal line shows the notes of the C Major scale in sequence. There are 12 tones on each line to allow the highlighting of the harmonized tones from C to the C an octave higher.

Each horizontal line emphasizes the 3 notes that are used to build the triad for that particular tone. The first line shows the three notes that comprise the C Major triad; C, E, and G. The second line shows the 3 tones of the D minor triad; D, F, and A.
