This is an exercise taken out of Walter Piston’s Harmony (4th ed). Let me know how you would change my progression. Thanks!

As you can see, I’m new to this

  • How should we control your harmony when we don’t know what notes the l.h. plays and what piece this is? – Albrecht Hügli Feb 16 at 20:49
  • @AlbrechtHügli Piston is looking for an interpretation of the melody, another words it's internal harmony – Andrew Feb 16 at 21:03
  • In this case I wouldn’t try to answer with R.N. it is rather chromatic and based on augmented trads – Albrecht Hügli Feb 17 at 5:34

If it is this passagio, I assume we are in Cm and the 1st chord is Ab (VI), Eb+5 (III+5) D7 (V/vm)
