This Chord Will Revitalize Your Standards!

by | Comping, Harmonic Cadence, Jazz Improvisation

Did you know that there’s a seldom used chord, that when used in the right places will breathe new life to those overplayed Standards? It’s one the old beboppers didn’t know about . I heard  it for the first time in the playing of Allan Holdsworth, John Abercrombie, Ralph Towner, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, Larry Coryell and other legendary post-bop and fusion players.  

In this week’s video lesson I reveal this “secret” chord as well as its origin, and I teach you how to use it over several Standards that you most likely already play. I even demonstrate how to improvise over it employing a well known progression comprised almost exclusively of II-V-I’s.
