In part four, we will explore 7th no 3rd triads. Like 7th no 5th triads, these are derived simply by removing one note from a traditional 7th chord although, in this case, the 3rd is removed. This fascinating structure creates a sound that is both traditional and tonal due to its derivation from 7th chords, and at the same time, open and ambiguous because of its lack of 3rd. In many ways, this configuration provides the best of both worlds.
