Two Chords in One
July 21, 2017

Friday, July 21, 2017


Hold your horses, people! When you see one chord, you are now going to play two! Say what? Yeah, its true and you better believe it'll sound awesome.

This lesson shows you how to play the root and seventh of the chord in the left hand while playing a diminished chord (see last week's lesson for a refresher) built on the note that is one half step above the root in the right hand.

I know, I know, it sounds so much more complicated when I describe it in words but in a video, bellissimo!! (is that the right spelling?)
When you stack two chords on top of each other you get a wonderful melange of sounds. The technical term is tensions. Ah yes, we love tension in this case. This will give your music a gorgeous jazzy flavor.
