Major Chord Voicings Tutorial
One of the challenges of playing jazz is being able to quickly find a voicing that works well underneath any melody note you could come across on a lead sheet.
When you are playing, you should always be consciously analysing the melody note in terms of what scale degree it is in relation to the chord underneath.
If you have memorised a range of voicings that you know work well under specific scale degrees you will be able to easily find a suitable voicings to play under any melody note you come across.
Building chords that connects the harmony to the melody in this way is called harmonising the melody and when this can be done quickly, you’re playing will begin to sound much fuller.
In this lesson I am going to explore a range of major voicings that can be used under each of the 7 notes of the Lydian mode.
