Jazz Advanced, Locrian Natural 9.
This is the 6th step of G melodic minor.
[MUSIC].
We're starting on the E, and
we're stacking up the 3rds.
[MUSIC].
E.
[SOUND].
G.
[SOUND].
B flat.
[SOUND].
D.
[SOUND].
[MUSIC].
And we get a E minor 7 flat 5 arpeggio.
And E-min, E-minor 7 flat 5 chord.
[MUSIC].
And we use the surrounding notes from G
melodic minor, but still starting on E.
[MUSIC].
So E, F-Sharp, G, A.
B flat, C, D, and E.
[MUSIC].
And here we get a Locrian natural 9.
It means this note, F sharp instead of F.
'Cause
[MUSIC].
In a pure.
[MUSIC].
Locrian scale.
[MUSIC].
Here.
[MUSIC].
You hear the difference between.
[MUSIC]
Hit this one
instead, F Sharp.
And that's an im, important note.
[MUSIC].
That's one kind of note that
makes the sound of this note.
[MUSIC].
Let's do some larger intervals.
We've been doing 4ths and
5ths and 3rds and, and you know,
we've been doing these
kind of usual intervals.
Let's try with,
let's try with for instance.
[MUSIC].
6.
[MUSIC].
Like this, then we have a E, C.
[MUSIC].
F sharp, D.
G,
[MUSIC].
And C, E, wrong.
A.
[SOUND].
And F-sharp.
[SOUND].
B flat and A, G B flat and G, C and A.
[MUSIC].
B flat and.
[SOUND].
D and B flat, excuse me.
[MUSIC].
E and C and, then we're back, E and C.
And we can continue further up,
F sharp, D, G, and E.
[MUSIC].
A and F sharp and B flat and.
[MUSIC].
And G, and
we can turn it around there like.
[MUSIC].
Find our way back.
[MUSIC].
This is the, is the chord.
So, and another thing that I,
maybe I didn't tell you before,
if you wanna flavor these chords.
[MUSIC].
when, when you're comping,
this goes for all these modes.
And you can choose to note.
Within the chord, that you think is,
the one that's really creating the,
kind of tension, like in this case.
There is of course an E
minor 7 flat 5 chord, but
this is the note that makes
it kind of interesting.
Natural 9, so why not add the natural 9
to your to your chord voicing, like this.
[MUSIC]
Like you're playing the chord,
instead of just playing E minor 7 flat 5.
[MUSIC].
You can play E minor 7 flat 5 with.
[MUSIC].
With the.
[MUSIC].
With that note, the F sharp.
This is another interval, before we
play along with the backing track,
there's another interval that we can use.
It's using 7th note like.
[MUSIC].
E, D.
And next one.
F sharp, an E, G, an F sharp.
A and G.
B flat and A.
And C.
And B flat.
[MUSIC].
There we go, we have D and C.
We have E and D.
And we have here, up here, E-flat and E.
And then we can turn back,
the same way back.
[SOUND].
One more time.
[MUSIC].
So let's improvise over the E,
minor 7 flat 5,
Locrian natural 9,
6 step of G melodic minor.
Here we go.
[SOUND].
[MUSIC].
[MUSIC].
