Why does these notes sound....
Why does these selected notes sound good over the listed chords.
C major chord Notes that are played in ascending format G-F-E-D to C.
D minor chord Notes that are played in ascending format A-G-F-E to D.
E minor chord Notes that are played in ascending format B-A-G-F-E.
F major chord Notes that are played in ascending format C-B-A-G to F.
G major chord Notes that are played in ascending format D-C-B-A to G.
A minor chord Notes that are played in ascending format E-D-C-B to A.
B dim chord Notes that are played in ascending format F-E-D-C to B.
I even tried on the piano and sound dead on. I don't know what to say. I have the list for the descending scale format as well if you want me to post them I will.
As no one has jumped in, here is my two cents worth.
If the notes are within the same scale they will sound good.
Here G-F-E-D-C are the notes from the 5th to the root. So they sound good together.

The F run -- F major chord Notes that are played in ascending format C-B-A-G to F. Sounds good because your tonal center is the C major scale. What you have done here is just come back down the C major scale from the C octave or 8 to 7 to 6 to 5 to 4.
Back to the ole; "If it sounds good it is good". Figure out the rest..... that fish thing.

I just realize that all notes in this example are a fifth from each root. Thanks for helping me realize that.
