March 21, 2013 | Stretching your Minor Chord vocabulary
Last week in our weekly Tips and Tricks column we continued offering new vocabulary in some 3-note chord blocks of the minor mode. These have been very practical, but we wanted to bring it home even more by showing you how these could work in a jazz standard. We gave you some "real world" variations in A minor and D minor in the context of the jazz standard, "Black Orpheus." It's surprising how far you can go with these if you're willing to venture up the neck!
Be sure to read the whole Tips article, but let's add something here you can print out and put on your music stand. We've created a one-page PDF of the chords. Enjoy!
