5. What notes are in Cmaj9add11?

6. What are the names of the I, ii, iii, IV, V, and VIIdim degrees in the major scale? ((The other names for them that relates to their 'function' so to speak. For example---I = tonic))

7. What is the primary rhythmic division in rock music? --not-- the lead melody rhythmic division, the rhythm.

1. The authentic cadence (or full cadence) is a V-I chord progression
A half cadence is a II-V or IV-V chord progression
A Plagal cadance (or modal cadence) is a IV - I chord progression
A Deceptive cadence is a V-VI chord progression

2. The neapolitan 6th chord is usually played as the first inversion of a major chord on the b2 of the major key. It can function as a II chord before going to a V.

3. A mode is a scale that is derived from a parent scale

4. Voice leading is where one plays chords with the top note of the chord suggesting a melody

5. Cmaj9add11 - C E G B D F

Random note: Cmaj9add11 is almost never used in jazz or anything, a more common chord would be Cmaj9#11

6. I = Tonic
II = Supertonic
III = Mediant
IV = Sub dominant
IV = Dominant
VI = Submediant/Superdominant
VII = Leading tone/Subtonic

7. I would go out on a limb and say 8th notes
