How To: Improvise over Jazz changes using chord tones with Jeff Richman

Improvise over Jazz changes using chord tones with Jeff Richman

Soloing over a large amount of Jazz changes can be tough, with the chord changes sometimes spanning through two or three different keys. One trick to soloing in Jazz to solo over the chord tones of the chords that are being played. You can either use only the 3rd and 7th the chords, as well as using triads and arpeggios. In this amazing video lesson from Jeff Richman from Musician's Institute, you will learn how to apply all these techniques over Jazz changes.

Thank you so much for sharing these "tools" Jeff. I have been playing for decades (only last few years in jazz) and this video has forced me to liberate myself away from regurgitating scales and arpeggios while soloing over chord changes. The 3rds and 7ths trick is the most powerful focal point....Thank you....Jerry Jazz
