Merry Little Christmas Intro & Outro Tutorial
This is part 2 of the tutorial on "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".
In part 1 we created a solo jazz piano arrangement for the whole form. In this part of the tutorial we will study the construction of improvised introductions and endings.
We conduct a harmonic analysis of the key – Ab Major – and identify the chords that we can use to create intros and outros.
We also apply theory and concepts from the PianoGroove course including:
- tritone substitution
- upper structure harmony
- passing chords
The concepts covered in this lesson can be applied to any jazz standard so pay attention as we cover a number of important harmonic principles.
