Learn How to Perform Common Jazz Chord Progressions for Popular Standards
Nearly the entire jazz standard songbook includes one or more of 6 very commonly encountered chord progressions: 2-5-1 major, 2-5-1 minor, 1-4-1, 1-6-2-5, 4-4minor-1, and the 1-2-dominant-2-minor-V-1. You’ll find yourself playing these progressions hundreds of times at any jazz gig or jam session.
The last thing you want to do is play these 6 chord progressions the same way, with the same chord voicings, every time they come up in a tune. Not only will you personally find this boring, but it’s also the quickest way to lose the gig or not get invited back up on the jam stage. In fact, there are chord voicings you want to avoid to avoid the bass player’s sonic territory. And, there are some voicings to avoid as to not interfere with what the vocalist or soloist is playing.
In this Chord Options edition of the Jazz Comping Factory, Frank Vignola will guide you through creative options for handling the common jazz standard chord progressions. Frank will demonstrate all 30 of the chord options presented in this course in the context of a performance, then he will comp over backing tracks to show you how to apply them yourself at a gig or jam session.
“In the first half of this Jazz Comping Factory, I’ll show you 5 options for handling each of these 6 chord progressions. That’s 30 chord progression options in all. Plus, I’ll tell you why and when to use each option in the context of a performance. In the second half of the course, we’ll apply all 30 of those options by comping over backing tracking featuring changes similar to 5 of the most popular jazz standards being played on the gig or at a jam.
Frank will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
