ExamplE2 DOM­I­NANT 7b5 CHORDS in a RHYTHM CHANGES MID­DLE EIGHT

Guitar Techniques - - CREATIVE ROCK -

ch¡ This ex­am­ple uses the ords from the mid­dle-eight bars of ‘rhythm

Rh£ythm, Ole£o, changes’; tunes based on I Got Flint­stones etc. The first four bars are ba­sic chords, but from bar 5 we add the ‘pure’ tri­tone substitution, where D7 moves to A 7 5; G7 moves to D 7 5, etc. As jazz de­vel­oped, play­ers were happy to use every chord as a 7 5 colour, as in bars 9-12. If you want to go fur­ther, use tri­tone substitution from the D7 5 and the C7 5 in bars 9 and 10 and con­vert them into A 9#11 and G 9#11. Then the last run will be­come chro­matic 9#11 chords. Far out!
