    How to Play Jazz: An Overview of Jazz Theory

    Hello All,


    I made a video which briefly summarises the basics of Jazz theory - from modes to the chord-scale system to available tensions and a few other things. Check it out if you're interested. Thanks

    I liked the video- good summary on the core of the theories without ending up like a math lesson with 20 feet of chalkboard full of scribbles or just showing off how fast you can shred scales over chord shapes.
    Good stuff

    A lot of the original Jazz men couldn't even read music it was all by musical "feel" for want of a better word, basic jazz does not need the dots.
    I don’t want a signature any more
