Notating inversions

• May 6, 2020 - 21:14

Got any tips on how to do this correctly? What's the difference in notation for a the I chord in 1st inversion, and also the I6 chord? I mean I know how to notate them on paper, but how do I do this in Muscescore? I am using the chord entry Ctrl+K. Is that right for this, of is there some other way to do this?


They denote the same thing. To enter Roman Numeral chord notation, use Add > Text > Roman Numeral Analysis and type I6 and watch what happens.

You're right and I'm right.. In Jazz, C6 means CEGA . In classical theory and analysis, I 6 means the 6-3 inversion of I, if it's C, then E G C. CEGA is a 6-5 chord, the first inversion of A minor 7. Roman Numeral notation is used less in jazz, and I 6 to mean the 6-5 chord on the first degree is pretty ambiguous.
