Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

November 19, 2012 | Minor 7th chord stream wrap up

Some of the juiciest chord blocks we've ever put up, we took a look under the hood at last week's Tips and Tricks session at the simple but chocolatey tasting variations of the Minor 7th chord up the fretboard. These are a "must-have" for any serious modal jazz musician, and a terrific parlor trick set of chords to mover around the fretboard.

You don't need to know the science behind them, they just sound great by themselves. Then again, if you want to understand how they are derived, you can learn to apply the simple theory and manipulate effectively in all twelve keys!
