The rootsubminor triad is a 16:19:24 chord which has steps of 7/6-9/7-4/3, which makes it also 6:7:9. It tempers out the hendrix comma of 57/56. This chord is notable for being a worthy starting point in exploring the quality of "subminorness," inasmuch as it can function equally as (1:)16:19:24 or (1:)6:7:9, depending on which note the listener hears as the root.
