Just started working out of the Thesauras again (for some reason) and
can't quite grok the "Master Chord" designations yet.
In the Introduction he explains that the Master chords are dom7 chords
with 5th omitted and are designated by circled Arabic numerals 1 through 12. I'm assuming that 1 is C7, 2 is C#7, 3 is D7, etc., through 12 which is B7. But that doesn't seem to completely agree with his examples on page v of
the Intro or with any of the patterns, as far as I can tell.

So what exactly do the circled numbers really refer to?

you are correct on page 1 of the tritone progression excersise 1 can work over c7(1) f7(6) f#7{7} and a B7{12) thats all there is to it

Hi, Joey. We have to be the "Last of the (original) Mohicans" on the
ng. Hope some of the others like Margo are holding up. BTW I'll be 70
next month. Just bury me in that land of "Ancient Music Theory" when my
time is up. Sincerely,

I remember both of you, cheers to the old gang of rec.music.theory!

A year ago, I tried to get a conversation going about post-functional theories of harmony here (Dmitri Tymoczko et. al.). It didn't get far. These days, I read the Reddit music theory group and occasionally post anonymously. It's much more active than
here.
