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!
I can’t emphasis enough how interesting, educational and entertaining this video is. Jake’s final track (with the help of his collaborators) is pretty epic too. Well worth a watch!
I’ve written a comprehensive (6 pages long!) review of the new ROLAND JUPITER Xm synthesizer after using it for a month and making a few videos about it. The article is exclusively available to my Patreon supporters. The cost of membership to unlock the post and all my other premium content is as little as a dollar per month. Thanks!
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.
Really interesting analysis of one of my favorite tunes to jam on guitar. The theory gets a bit over my head towards the end but a thoroughly enjoyable watch from Adam Neely.
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.
