This table is arranged in ascending Scalecode and note in fifths alphabetical order. i.e column b. Notice that each scalecoding produces particular related chord patterns, and that lower codings eg. 2/0 will produce more consonant open chords than higher scalecodings. eg. 5/0. The limitations of conventional chord symbols become obvious once we move beyond the major and minor tonality of western music as in the final entry in the table above
