The Most Beautiful Chord Progression
In this lesson we explore the beautiful 1436251 Progression in the key of Eb Major. If you are looking for a nice chord progression to introduce your jazz standards, this is the progression you have been waiting for.
Diatonic 7th Chords
We start by building the diatonic 7th chords in the key of Eb to understand the base chords that we are working with. We then start to change the chord qualities to dominant 7 which allows us to access more interesting colours and textures.
Introductions To Jazz Standards
This progression is the perfect introduction for any tune that starts on the Imaj7 chord. A nice touch is to run up the upper structure triad on the final V7 chord which then leads smoothly and convincingly into the start of the tune. We demonstrate using this intro for the tunes “Misty” and “Over The Rainbow”.
