Theory II: Mediant Chord

The Mediant triad (III) is probably the least used of the diatonic chords. It is the most distant chord from the Dominant, so is rarely seen expecpt early in progressions or as part of a circle-of-fifths sequence. It can be preceeded by I and possibly vi, and typically moves to IV or vi.
