Jazz Basics, Turnaround Licks.
I've noticed that it has been a demand for
turnaround licks.
And phrases that you can use for
turnaround in, in songs.
So I'm gonna teach you a few ones.
Let's say the chord progression is.
[MUSIC]
G Major 7.
E7, A minor 7, D7.
It's like a 1, 6, 2, 5, but
the 6 would be E minor,
but here we have like a 5, 7, 2, 2.
So, 1, 5, 7, 2, 2,
[MUSIC]
2, a minor 7, 5 7, going back to 1.
And this first chord, G major 7, G major
7 can sometimes be replaced by B minor 7.
[MUSIC]
Like this instead of.
[MUSIC]
So you start with this chord.
[MUSIC]
And then you have 3, 5, 7, 2, 2, 2, and 5.
And sometimes you can also change the A7,
the A minor 7,
the 2, into a A7, that 5, 7, 2, 5.
So
[MUSIC]
or.
[MUSIC].
These are the basic turnarounds in,
in the key of, of G.
If you go back to my blues lesson I did in
the jazz block you can find all kinds of
more difficult turnarounds with,
with tritone substitutions and stuff.
Another one I can mention is
probably that you can replace,
like G go to B flat 7,
tritone substitution for E7.
A minor 7, A flat 7,
tritone substitution for D7 so.
[MUSIC]
Or if you wanna do B minor,
B flat 7, A minor 7, A flat 7, or
E minor 7, B flat 7, A7.
[MUSIC]
So
you can hear where it will sound a little
bit different if I start with a basic one.
[MUSIC]
A7.
[MUSIC]
Was doing A7,
you hear this note is important.
The C Sharp instead of the C.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Now I'm using
the B flat here.
Instead of the E,
E7 I play on top the B flat 7.
[MUSIC]
A, A flat 7 instead of D7.
[MUSIC]
So here's a useful lick I can.
[MUSIC]
[SOUND] If you want to play
it in the same position.
[MUSIC]
Fingering
is optional but here are the notes.
7th position G string.
[SOUND] D, D on the same string.
[MUSIC]
G, C,
E, B,
[MUSIC]
A, 3rd of E7, G sharp, flat 9,
E F, or E7, E, D, C.
[MUSIC]
Or
we play here,
if you wanna play here, here.
[MUSIC]
Works fine too.
Or.
[MUSIC]
Of course everywhere.
[MUSIC]
Then going up to B, A,
G, F sharp up to E flat, D, C, B.
[MUSIC]
When if ya wanna have some variation and
play the A7 instead of a minor.
It will sound like this.
[MUSIC]
C Sharp instead.
[MUSIC]
Changing one note.
[MUSIC]
Changing two notes
if you wanna have the
[MUSIC]
flat 9 over the A7, the B flat.
So, C sharp, B flat.
[MUSIC]
Going back,
[MUSIC]
Same progression.
[MUSIC]
Except G Major if you have B minor.
[MUSIC]
E7 here B, C,
E, B, A, G sharp, F.
[MUSIC]
B and D.
[MUSIC]
To play there.
If you have A minor
[MUSIC]
C, B, A, G, F sharp,
E flat, D, C, B.
Or if you want to have.
[MUSIC]
A7, C sharp,
[MUSIC]
We'll have the flat 9 B flat.
[MUSIC]
You can go, choose to go
down instead if the,
[MUSIC]
You can do down.
[MUSIC]
Same thing one octave down.
[MUSIC]
C, B, A, G, F sharp.
E flat, D, C, B, or C sharp.
[MUSIC]
Or, and if,
if you wanna use the B flat
you can do what I did here.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
So a B minor.
[MUSIC]
triad.
[MUSIC]
E minor 7.
Or.
[MUSIC]
Part of the major 7 arpeggio.
B, from G, B, D, F sharp, A, B flat.
[MUSIC]
D, F and A flat A,
A, C, E, G, A flat, C,
A flat, and G flat, G.
[MUSIC]
This is another nice one.
[MUSIC]
Here you have the A7 and
D7 at the end so.
[MUSIC]
D, C, B, A,
G sharp, F, E,
D eigh-, C sharp,
E, G and B, C, E flat,
flat 9, and D7.
F sharp and B, sounds like this.
[MUSIC]
One more time.
[MUSIC]
Like that and
we have another one with triplets here.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
D, C, B, A, G sharp,
B, D, F, E, D.
We're on the fifth string now.
C, 4th E, G, third string B, A.
G on the, fourth string.
[MUSIC]
F Sharp, a on the third string, C.
[MUSIC]
E flat on the second string.
D, C, and B.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
That way if you start by.
[MUSIC]
A, G, A, B, D.
[MUSIC]
G, A, B,
D, G sharp, B,
D, F, E, D, C,
E, B, A
[MUSIC]
F sharp, C,
A, C, E flat,
D, C, B.
[MUSIC]
That's a nice one.
[MUSIC]
So those were a few licks for
a major turnarounds that are very useful.
So check those out and after a while,
you can start improvising around
them just like I did at the end.
Bye.
[MUSIC]
