Minor Line Cliche Tutorial

The minor line cliché is one of the most recognisable progressions in jazz music. You will find this sequence of chords over and over again in countless jazz standards so it makes sense to understand how the progression is constructed.

In this lesson we are going to explore the different ways you can navigate over the minor line cliché using bass lines, two-handed chords and left hand voicings.

We will apply these techniques to the tunes:

1) My Funny Valentine
2) Misty
3) What Are You Doing The Rest Of You Life?
4) In A Sentimental Mood

One thing is for certain, after this lesson you will always have something to play over the minor line cliché!
