Vlog: Re-harmonizing Standards – Modern Jazz Progressions and Jazz Chord Sounds

A few days ago I uploaded a Chord Melody Reharmonization of Night and Day. In this video I will go over the arrangement and some of the more unusual jazz guitar chords that I have used. Re-harmonizing jazz standards is fun and also a great way to add a personal touch to your interpretation of the song.

In my reharmonization I am using some more rich versions of the original chords and also in other places completely changing the harmony, using new less functional jazz progressions and colors.

Modern Jazz Harmony – Chord Progressions and Analysis

In this video I am going to analyze and break down 3 modern jazz progressions that I wrote using Modern Jazz voicings and chord progressions.

Most of my videos are on tonal progression like standards, but most of the music I write is really quite different and much more unclear.

This video is going to take 3 vamps that I wrote as some non functional vamps that I might use in one of my songs. I will try to analyze the progression and talk about how it’s written and how I might improvise over it.
