¿Cómo empezó todo? Con una explosión en el Metropolitan Museum de Nueva York hace unos diez años y los angeles imagen de un jilguero de plumas doradas, un cuadro espléndido del siglo xvii que desapareció entre el polvo y los cascotes. Quien se lo llevó fue el mismo Theo, un chiquillo entonces, que de pronto se quedó huérfano de madre y se dedicó a malgastar su vida, mientras el recuerdo de una niña pelirroja llenaba sus noches y un bulto sospechoso iba pasando de mano en mano hasta llegar a Holanda.
¿Cómo acabará todo? Para saberlo hay que dejarse llevar por el talento de Donna Tartt, los angeles autora que ha conseguido poner al día las reglas de los grandes maestros, El jilguero es probablemente el primer clásico del siglo xxi.

The following chord forms are the most common movable 4 note voicings for Major chords on the guitar. e. only 3 separate letter names). None of these grips use any open strings so they can be transposed easily up and down the fretboard. They all have the chord’s root as the lowest pitch. The 3rds and 5ths of these voicings are often in a higher octave than they were when we were originally constructing the triad types. This is nothing to be alarmed about. An E situated a 10th above a C Root will still be functioning as the major 3rd of some type of a C chord.
This fourth note will be a major, minor or augmented 3rd above the triad’s 5th (or ∫5 or #5). This new note will be seven letter names, and therefore some sort of a seventh interval, above the chord’s root, hence the term “Seventh” chord. C Major 7th = C (Root) E (3rd) G (5th) B (7th) 50 © 1998 J. M. Goldstein Some times an inversion of a 7th chord will be named as if the lowest chord tone is actually the root.
