I have a new video for some of you more advanced players.
It's about jazz ii V7 I's. Check it out here.
I show you a simple yet very jazzy sounding, universally accepted jazz voicing that you can start practicing right away with both hands.
If you liked my video about "Learning all 12 keys for Major Chords" then you'll love this.
Just like the previously mentioned video, I show you how to recognize patterns in the chords
Below is the “I Feel Pretty Chord” which outlines a Bb minor 7. Ab(7th) C(9th) Db(3rd) F(5th).
Notice that I’m not playing the root which is Bb because these voicings assume you are playing the root with your left hand or you are playing with a bass player.
In this video you’ll learn…
How to play all the ii V7 I’s you will ever need for comping and soloing and keep them forever
These chords are the real deal. Forget those vanilla voices you’ve been working on for 5 years. It’s time to graduate to what real jazz musicians are using daily. Furthermore you’ll know them in all 12 keys which means you’ll be able to transpose on the spot
How to easily and effortlessly change between the chords without moving your hands at all -- you won’t ever want to go back to your old ways
These chords are built in such a way that playing them will be intuitive and when you go to play a gig or jam session, your focus will be on where it really needs to be: Making music and having fun instead of struggling over what chords to use or reverting to the chords you already know which sound too basic for jazz.
Here's the video link again.
