in jazz, where, when we play a chord,
we're playing a seventh, so,
if we harmonize, a scale, so, a scale of
I would probably play here a major
seventh, that's L1.
L2 would be a minor seventh.
Three would be a minor seventh.
Four would be a major seventh.
Five is a seventh.
[SOUND] Here's a minor seventh.
[SOUND] Seventh is a minor, and [SOUND],
we have a major seventh there as well.
That's how I would, I would voice that.
And then I wouldn't necessarily play all
of the notes.
And I can also do things where I move
those around a little bit.
really think about the, where the, where
the seventh come in, comes in,
whether it's a minus seventh, dominant
seventh, major seventh.
just want to say something very quickly
about 2, 5, 1.
Usually when we are playing 2,
5, 1 we think of the 2 as a minor.
So if in C the 2 would be D Minor,
5 would be at the 7.
And then the C major or sometimes a major
That's the major seventh sound.
Of course we can play it with the, the two
being just a seventh.
That kind of sound.
That's the major-
Or the minor.
when we play this scale we'll say with a C
major seventh, minor seventh,
minor, major seventh, seventh, minor
That's our scale there.
Something that very often confuses people
is that, is when say we're playing C.
But, don't actually,
there's not a C in there.
We're playing the inside voicings really.
So, say we have the C triad like that.
I can play
Just these two notes here,
a major seventh, sixth.
And I can play some of the other
notes here so very often we would actually
miss out the fifth of the chord because-
just maybe play the the seventh or the
tenth or the third.
So that's something to, to think about
when you play a chord, you don't have to
play all of the notes within that chord.
And you can change the inversions, you
Because the, the 10th is, is an inversion
of the, of the 3rd.
It we're just taking an, an Octave higher.
So we could have say a C.
maybe I'm not going to play the root C.
I might play a C here.
Or we can actually,
we can play it without playing the C at
That's implying, a C-major.
C major 7th.
So experiment with this when you're,
when you're playing a chord, a D minor.
[SOUND] See, I'm playing, that's implying
a D minor 7th.
I'm not playing a D.
[SOUND] There it is there, but not,
there's no, at no point am I playing a D.
[SOUND] That can imply a D, a D minor.
I'm not playing the root at all anywhere
That's very handy to know as well when
you're gonna be working with
other musicians as well with a bass player
who's gonna be playing,
gonna be putting the bottom end in there.
Or the, the, the root notes and when
you're working with another chord
instrument another guitarist, piano or any
other keyboard instrument.
You can sometimes get away with just
playing a few notes within that
Not playing everything.
And not necessarily playing the root note
