EXAMPLE 5 TRITONE BLUES
This bebop blues uses tritone substitutions by adding extra chromatic passing chords (as in bar 3 with G 7) and side-stepping from a semitone above (bar1,
B7-Bb7); with or below the target chord (bar 2 with E7-F7) etc. Also notice the use of a diminished chord in bar 6, the extra activity in Bars 7-8 and the turnaround movementGin7bars 11-12. Written in the style of ace jazz rhythm player Freddie Green, it uses three-note chords containing just roots, 3rds and
Play all the chords in a relatively clipped manner, but with good attack and a nice jazz tone.
