Excellent breakdown of the harmony and theory of the wonderful and challenging tune Giant Steps by John Coltrane. The chord progression is widely used and is known as the “Coltrane Changes”. A must know progression and this video provides an excellent explanation of the theory and how to voice the chords. A must watch for intermediate and advanced players.
An entertaining and informative video from a great blues piano player. I really enjoyed this one and certainly will watch out for those mistakes in my own performances!
Another killer lesson from Jake, this time demonstrating some advanced chord voicings. Definitely at the top of my practice list for the coming weeks. Beautiful playing as always.

Another wonderful and inspiring lesson. Pay particular attention to the lovely voicings used as he walks up all the chords in the major scale.
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.
