A song that’s always fascinated me due to the slow pace of the chords and the fantastic 7sus4 chord voicings played by Herbie Hancock. It’s great fun to solo over and this lesson will give you a few creative ideas.
Superb video from the excellent Jake Lizzio about using modulations or key changes in your compositions. Fantastic presentation as always and some very interesting examples of some common modulations.
Corey is such a lovely gentleman and the most requisite and tasteful player. Here he presents for you 3 wonderful chords that will add a new sound to your playing.
Essential lesson for keyboard players or all levels from MangoldProject (I don’t know his name). The 2-5-1 progression is one of the most commonly used chord progressions in jazz and pop and here is a breakdown of the many ways you can play and voice the chords.
I know nearly all of these voicings and use them all the time so I highly recommend watching and learning the techniques demonstrated in this video.
So What is an essential Miles Davis tune to know with a fabulous Bill Evans minor 7 chord voicing. It’s an example of a modal tune which is a lot of tun and relatively easy to solo over due to the slow pace of the chords. The wonderful Aimee Noite gives you some great pointers about ideas for playing a great improvisation.
My goal has always been to share the knowledge I’ve learned over 40 years of playing piano, synth and keys. I create and share these videos for my YouTube Channel Members.

Another video I’m working on myself, it goes from very basic concepts to quite advanced in a short time, so some great tips here for everything. Some beautiful playing and the soothing voice of the instructor make it worth the watch!
If you are curious about my music production process then this video is for you. We demonstrate the newly .launched Native Instruments SUPER 8 synthesizer by putting together a quick track in a synthwave style.
Here’s another video on the subject of Drop 2 voicing, a relatively simple but very effective tool to play some very beautiful sounding chord voicing. Make sure to check out the Drop 2 voicing video I shared in my previous post. Definitely a topic I will be practicing myself in the coming months.
Another video from my personal playlist of YouTube videos to study. This video is about drop 2, a sparse and beautiful spread voicing. The instructor does a great job of explaining the technique and the playing is exquisite.
