Jazz Advanced,
Superimposing Chromatic Approach.
Here's a little lesson
about using chromatic
approach to chords when
you are improvising.
This is something I do at times.
I like it very much.
For instance, if you have
a song that starts with A flat,
major 7 chord like this.
I could actually start.
[MUSIC].
So approach it by playing a G.
Try it, G major.
[MUSIC].
And then go back into the, the.
[MUSIC].
Or G major 7.
[MUSIC].
So you hear.
[MUSIC].
Or.
[MUSIC].
Or even approach from
one half above from A.
Or from two steps below.
This is one of my favorites
I used to do all the time.
[MUSIC].
What I'm doing there,
I'm playing arpeggio.
G flat major seven, G major 7 into A flat.
So instead of just starting.
[MUSIC].
I might start.
[MUSIC].
Or the opposite way.
Starting B flat, A.
[MUSIC].
Chromatic approach.
[MUSIC].
This calls for all chords,
if you have a C minor, you can do.
[MUSIC].
Or minor major 7.
[MUSIC].
Or [INAUDIBLE].
[MUSIC].
C minor starts with C sharp minor,
and go back into the chord.
[MUSIC].
Like that.
[MUSIC].
So you can go from either two or
three steps down if you like to.
I prefer to,
to go from one half step up, or
one half step down, or
two steps down, or two steps up.
Here's a little cadence when I
will demonstrate, just a cake.
[MUSIC].
Like that.
