Pentatonic Chord Voicings
In this lesson I’m going to introduce you to the concept of pentatonic harmony. This lesson is closely related to the ‘Pentatonic Improvisation’ lesson so if you haven’t watched that tutorial I’d recommend you check that out first.
As with all lessons I’ll demonstrate how you could apply the theory concept to a jazz standard. The application of pentatonic harmony is so vast so this is literally the tip of the iceberg but we will be adding this theory into future jazz standard lessons and also looking at utilising these sounds for fills, introductions and endings.
The jazz standard I have chosen to demonstrate pentatonic harmony in action is ‘What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life’ which is one of my all time favourites. I’ve chosen this tune because it has particularly rich harmony.
We’re are going to start off with a simple example and then move onto something more challenging.
