MADOERY, Diego. Charly García: between rock and classical-romantic harmony. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2019, vol.73, n.231, pp.120-136. ISSN 0716-2790.

The present work is part of a wider research that was proposed to detect, describe and interpret the stylistic features of the songs of argentine rock musician Charly García, in his first period. This stage, in which he recorded most of his compositions, cover from the first album of the group Sui Géneris, Vida (1972/3) to Say no more of 1996. In this research it was observed that a set of melodic-harmonic distinctive characteristic of the rock traverse its work in different ways. In this publication I show how Charly's concern to be considered a rock musician is one of the impulses of his style and it is manifested in the combination between the properly rock's features and those of the harmony of ‘common practice’.

Keywords : Charly García; analysis; tune; harmony.
