Drop 2 & Chromatic Passing Chords - Take The A-Train

This Lesson will give you an overview Drop 2 voicings for this standard progression and exercises and examples of how to comp with chromatic passing chords.

I made this lesson to give you a way into adding chromatic passing chords to your Drop 2 comping. The package will give you a good work through Drop2 voicings for this standard progression and also several exercises and examples of how to add chromatic passing chords to this progression and of course to your comping in general.

Drop2 voicings on There will never be another you

In this lesson I set out to try and demonstrate how I use drop2 voicings in my comping and also pass on some general thoughts on playing in a rhythm section and backing up a soloist.

The lesson is built around a 3 chorus improvised performance that I did where I am comping with drop2 voicings on the changes of the standard "There will never be another you"

It is not that difficult to play, and is a good realistic version of how you can comp behind a soloist without getting in the way but still make the harmony clear and play some interesting things.

Description

When you play jazz guitar you need to be able to comp. You need the chord vocabulary and the knowledge of the chords to play in a musical way through a Jazz Progression like a jazz standard. Drop2 voicings is a great place to start.

With this lesson bundle, you can check out how to use Drop2 voicings on the Blues and common standards. Going over this material will give you vocabulary and ideas that you can apply to any song. It will also help you learn these songs if you are not yet familiar with them.

Drop2 voicings are the chord types you want to learn if you want to start really getting into mainstream jazz. They are both flexible and versatile enough to play anything and also stay playable.  They are also the primary type of voicing being used both in bebop piano and by Wes Montgomery.

Working on your Drop2 vocabulary will help you develop:

  • A vocabulary of common jazz voicings
  • Prepare you for playing chord solos
  • Make it easier to get started using block harmony for chord melody
  • Learn some of the voice-leading and embellishment habits of Bebop comping

The repertoire covered in the bundle is very useful Jazz standard repertoire. Famous (and great) jazz standards like “Take The A-Train” and “All The Things You Are” are a must in any Jazz repertoire and will teach you important things about form and harmony.
