3 Common 251 Reharmonisations
In this lesson, Tuomo shows us 3 common reharmonisations of a 251 progression.
To begin, we look at changing the 2 chord, Fm7, to a dominant, F7. This works well because it creates a chain of dominant chords, and we can change the tonic chord Ebmaj to a dominant as well for added effect.
Secondly, we look at replacing the 5 chord, Bb7, with its tritone substitute, E7. This is a simple reharmonisation in itself but it can be made more interesting by adding a 2 chord to the tritone substitute, i.e. Bm7 – E7 – Bbm7 – Eb7.
Lastly, Tuomo demonstrates a chromatic 25, where we play a short 25 a half step above the original 25.
There are countless possibilities just with these three simple reharmonisations and Tuomo challenges us to find connections between them and ways to connect and combine them.
