6 Minor Jazz Blues

by | Chord Melody

Miles SmilesI’m excited to introduce the first of a 6-part Series on minor jazz blues. For starters I have selected one that hopefully you should all be familiar with…the Wayne Shorter composition, “Footprints” originally recorded by Miles Davis on the album “Miles Smiles”. This by the way, is the only one of the 6 selections in this series that isn’t in 4/4 time. It is actually in 6/8 time. Now…if you’ve never played anything in 6/8 time, please don’t be intimidated. Even if you can’t chew gum and ride a bike at the same time, I’m sure I will be able to teach you how to count it out and get an overall good feel for it!


The 6 Minor Jazz Blues Files can be downloaded for $19.00 . Your contribution is much appreciated, as it helps support the site and allows me to keep investing the long hours required to produce these lessons. This special package includes the 6 blues in this series which are: Footprints, Equinox, Blue Train, Mr PC, Chitlins Con Carne and Comin’ Home Baby. The download includes the following files for each of the 6 Jazz Blues: a  PDF with both regular notation and TAB, an MP3 of the arrangement, an MP3 backing track and a Band in a Box File. That’s a total of 24 files!

      There is no email! You didn’t follow the instructions and registered again instead of choosing “have an existing account”. I have deleted your 2nd registration which was confusing the system. Please login and simply go back to the post and click on “download”.
