Hey, I'm excited because now,
we're gonna play one of
my favorite Jazz tunes.
I've been playing, and practicing
on this song for, many, many years.
It's All the Things You Are.
I'm gonna just play the, the progression
for you once, and check it out.
[MUSIC]
Follow along on the b,
on the chart that you have online.

[MUSIC]
Then there's a turnaround.
G minor 7, flat 5, C7,
to get back to the top.
This time through, I'm gonna be using our
play along of, All the Things You are.
To demonstrate some of the neighbor, and
approach tones in around the basic triads,
and seventh chords of each
of the chords in this song.
I may talk a little bit while I'm playing,
so, you know, what I'm kinda trying to do.
Let's give it a try.
[MUSIC]
This time, I'm just
kinda outlining the chords.
[MUSIC]
Now, put some neighbor tones.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
I've added
the seventh there.
[MUSIC]
E standing.
[MUSIC]
Now, I'm begin,
using a scale fragment,
and just putting
a half-step below each one.
[MUSIC]
Add some
blues.
[MUSIC]
Back to work.
[LAUGH]
[MUSIC]
Triplets.
[MUSIC]
A little tricky there.
[MUSIC]
We're
gonna go,
from
above.
[MUSIC]
It's
going down
to chromatic
note, in be,
below each.
[MUSIC]
So, I was doin some,
quite a bit of blabbing
while I was playing.
But I think you get the idea.
Now, it's very important to take this, and
spend enough time, and go slow, some of
that I might have been moving a little
too quickly for you to jump right in on.
But you can take a segment of it,
work on it, and
see if you can master a little part of it.
And then, take that, and work it through
the rest of the play along, on your own.
I think it's important
to try to loop this, and
try to play it, for quite a long time.
If you need to, just look at the chart,
make your own play along track
even at a slower tempo, and
go through it, bit by bit.
And once you have it all together,
make a little video, send it to me.
[MUSIC]
I'd love to see what you're doing.
