Midnight Mood Tutorial
Joe Zawinul’s Midnight Mood is a 24 measure A-B tune. The melody and chord changes are repetitive throughout the form which creates the opportunity to reharmonise the changes and add interesting chord substitutions.
We start the lesson by playing through the form with just left hand voicings and the melody and then add some bigger sounding two handed voicings the second time through.
In the final 5 minutes of the lesson we explore a range of chord substitutions and talk about the best way to add your own chord substitutions to your playing.
