Now we're gonna start with
a section that I call two five ones.
Now, in jazz, two five ones are like
the glue that holds soloing together.
They connect all the mean
chords of the music.
So if you're listening to a tune and
It's the roots.
So in C major we're going to start
out it's a D minor to a G to a C..
And if we extend that D minor
up to it's natural seventh
it's a D minor seventh.
That means it's a D minor chord
with that flatted 7th up on the top.
To a G seventh.
To a C major seventh.
So, there's a little exercise that
you should practice before you start
doing these, which involves playing.
All the seventh chords along an octave.
And in C, it's C major seven.
D minor seven.
E minor seven.
F major seven.
A minor seven.
And then B diminished with
the seventh on top its also called
the B minor seven flat five or
the B after mixture but
your just skipping over notes and
the easiest way to do this is to
do go up four notes go down four
notes so it sounds like this,
if I start from one
It almost sounds like music
going down and going up too.
On the piano you can just
put your hand down and
The harmonic we have to arpeggiate it.
So this will prepare you for
playing a long seventh chords.
And obviously, you wanna start
to do this in the other keys.
And since you know the scales
in the other keys,
I don't have to play these all for you.
I don't have to spoon-feed them to you.
You'll have to do that work on your own
to play the major 7th arpeggio in G.
The A minor 7th,
B minor 7th you figure out
what those chords are.
They sound exactly the same
whatever key you're in, so
that's up to you to work on them and
get through as many keys as you want.
