Interesting video by Jamal from Gospel Musicians about borrowing from the relative minor to add tension and interest. Nicely demonstrated and with some wonderful chord voicings to analyse and explore!
Wonderful, fun and highly recommended video from my friend Jack Duxbury on your first steps as a beginner piano player. Jack takes a nice approach to fast track you past the theory and get you making nice sounding music as quickly as possible.
The fabulous and talented Aimee Nolte breaks down some of the incredible riffs played by Oscar Peterson on one of the tunes from a favorite album of mine, Night Train. Aimee gives some fascinating insight and demonstrations of the techniques used by Oscar.
Corey demonstrates wonderfully how using inversions can completely transform the sound of your playing. Something I already do myself but I realise there is even more possibilities and options after watching this lesson.
My favorite demo guy, the funny, mega-talented and lovely Jack D shows us some essential tricks on the Hammond organ. Fun trivia fact, we come from the same home town!
Another excellent lesson from Jake who shows us how to build chords and progressions from the minor scale. This is a topic I’m exploring myself to provide more options and colours than what you get from the major scale chords.
Yet another lesson from the wonderful Warren. I’ve watched over and over again, replicating what Warren plays on my own piano, There are hundreds of gems in just the first ten minutes, some very tasteful licks, turnarounds, voicings and passing chords. Highly recommended!
Another excellent video from Warren and one of the best lessons you’ll find on YouTube about diminished chords.
This is a topic I’m working on myself at the moment, making sure I can nail these minor 2-5-1 in all the keys. This video is very helpful in showing us the most important voicings and why they work.
One of my new discoveries, Warren is our guide on this fantastic exploration of how to use 2-5-1 progression as passing movement to bring us to the IV and vi chord.
