EXDAMPLE 4 MA­JOR 9B5 CHORDS IN A BE­BOP TURN­AROUND

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

Be­bop mu­si­cians like the great John Coltrane and equally amaz­ing Char­lie Parker de­vel­oped a ‘turn­around’ that went like this: Gmaj7-Bb maj7-Eb mamj7Ab-maj7 . Here the pro­gres­sion is adapted to use a se­lec­tion of Ma­j9b5 chords.

DChords such as Maj9 5/#11 etc can be fairly dis­so­nant so in re­al­ity we use them care­fully and spar­ingly. When learn­ing though, im­merse your­self in them and learn to recog­nise the sound when you hear it. TRACK 79
