Voicing the 2-5-1: Twelve Examples, from SIMPLE to ADVANCED

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.

Soloing On “SO WHAT”

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.
