chromatic non-harmonic tones
1. Chromatic non-harmonic tones are notes that do not fit into the local harmony or the prevailing key.
2. The difference between chromatic non-harmonic tones and diatonic non-harmonic tones is the relationship of the note to the prevailing key. Chromatic non-harmonic tones are not diatonic to the key.
3. All types of non-harmonic tones can be chromatic.
Please see the section on non-harmonic tones for a review of the various types.
