Jingle Bells – B Section
In this lesson we explore the B section of the tune Jingle Bells and add reharmonisations and chord substitutions to our arrangement.
We start by identifying the basic chord changed which are the 1, 4, 5, and 6 chords. We then arrange the tune for solo jazz piano performance using techniques such as:
- inner voice movement
- tritone substitution
- suspended chords
- upper structure triads
- bluesy embellishments
In the next lesson on this tune we will explore improvisation over the form.
