This jazzy Christmas song tutorial is based on the chords and changes from the Bill Evans arrangement… check that out if you haven’t already!
In part 2 of this tutorial, we dive straight into the chord changes with two handed voicings and create an advanced ballad arrangement.
Commonly associated with the film “Casablanca”, this classic is written in Eb Major and follows a standard 32 bar A-A-B-A form.
In part 2 we create a full solo piano arrangement incorporating big 2 handed voicings, suspended chords, altered dominant chords and USTs.
This course covers the foundations of jazz improvisation. We explore scales, arpeggios, chord tones, enclosures, approach patterns & swing rhythm.
In this course we explore a range of voicings for major, minor and dominant chords. This will help you build full, solo piano arrangements.
In this tutorial we create a solo arrangement for “Georgia On My Mind” applying the major blues scale with some soulful licks and riffs.
The altered contains every possible altered chord tone and is a great scale choice to improvise over altered dominant chords.
Passing chords are temporary stepping stones between chords, adding variety and making your playing sound more interesting & dynamic.
The melodic minor is an exotic sounding scale and the modes of the melodic minor are used extensively in jazz improvisation.
