Turnarounds For F Blues
In this lesson we’ll look at the structure of 12-bar blues and explore some of the embellishments we can apply to the basic chord progression.
Using a basic jazz blues chord progression as the basis for our embellishments, we will gradually layer in more harmonically-interesting chord voicings and cadences.
Embellishments On The Standard Form
In this lesson we explore the following embellishments:
- Dominant chords from a 4th below
- V7 of V7 substitutions
- The 36251 turnaround
- The 1625 turnaround
- Tritone substitution
- Chromatic 25s
Many of the reharmonisations we cover involve tritone substitution. If this concept is new to you, check out the related lessons below.
