Jan 02, 2022

s um and uh this just happens to be from april 22, 2014 april 22, 2014 and i'll post a screenshot of this on my patreon page for you members um so you can see what we're talking about writing um you can get an idea you guys know my

note

taking ability for better or worse um and uh so this it's a great thing playing over a dominant seventh chord that's correct in this style once again when we get to Barry the first thing we realize is that this is the truth this is real and if you're a product of the jazz industrial complex like i'm uh you know um have gone to no name school right here the school i should go to no name this you may know you get some of it but not like you're not thinking about it and that's what it is you're getting into the way what are you p People thought when they came up with the sty le and this is how you can really get the sound right I think there really is no substitute for direct exposure to the source and that's what you get when you learn with

barry

those of you who don't know you should come to his online workshops on saturdays he's doing them they're on zoom and do it do yourself a favor just get it from the source ok you can go to his site barry

harris

.com or barryharriscalendar.com do a search or i might actually even put a link in the description and uh and see if he's doing an online workshop but anyway other than that here's the very cool move from April 22, 2014 ok from a g7 so what we are doing?

Ok this is based on an idea that every g7 seventh chord has a seven flat five minor chord in its b minor third seven flat five is in the third of the g7 and a d minor six is ​​in the fifth or so It's what he calls the minor, so okay, that's the thinking behind it, so what do we have? We have

three

voices double uh octave a with b and d in the middle octave e with f and a in the middle or the sixth of the 13th with the seventh and the ninth first it was the double ninth with the third and the fifth then you the sixth or the thirteenth with the 7th and 2nd or 9th and then the 7th and 2nd stay still and you move the bent note down to the 3rd so you have and the line is you'll go up a chord on the 3rd of the g7 there's a g7 scale and um, a chord by Barry's definition of a chord is to skip a note pattern note pattern note in the right scale so we're on the 3rd, skip a note, skip a note, skip a note and then put a half stand in front of it okay and if I wanted to do that all the way up the scale I'd go okay and we'll pick the one on the third okay and then that takes us right into the 9th which gives us the first of our

three

voices then we go down chromatically and that takes us if is a triplet that takes us back to the the second of the three voices and chromatically again ok here it is again one two three so that's the line uh you could do it in any direction you want obviously you can go up that's nice too you could vary all the levels depending on how much time you have in the song, you could do a little version of it, any combination of those three levels and again it comes from each seventh it has a minor seven flatted five or half diminished based on its third and a minor six based on its fifth So how can we use this?

Okay, how high is the moon. Go to the example song. So we have um g minor seven a f s a c seven. seven a b flat seven equals b flat seven here's the line in b flat seven uh sorry that might be good that's where you are here is here i can do it on d7 obviously ok so how high is the moon um what's up from um you know since this was taken in april in barry harris class let's do it in april harris april in paris so let's try it on this g7 c7 can i do it on the b7 even though it's a minor type of a b7 i can do it that worked great i never knew can i do it on the e7 it's a little weirder but you can't get away with that it works again don't do this don't use it everywhere but i'm just showing you so many places you can correct it um what's another great example lets say you wanted to do a bossa nova ok so you'll go uh here's a tritone the b7 is the tritone it fits like a glove i can do it here you'd have to be very careful the minor the minor context you can get away with it but you have to be careful , but then the song moves to a, you know, a plateau in the middle, if you want, it goes to a D major and, uh, or the way a colleague says, oh, he just stays there for a time, just hang out there. a while so he hangs out on a d7 in a D major for a while so I can do a seven day I don't know I'm trying to find my way around this let's try. again or maybe maybe, I wonder if I can see if I can do it with the 9 flat and use the minor tritones or a flat 6 minor then I can get away with it that means I could do it here too let's try this version the Second half of the song, it does B flat minor to E flat seven, I could do it in E flat seven all day and I could do it in B flat seven all day, can I do it in A flat? seven bet you or maybe yes maybe i'll start here can i do it on the two dominants the c7 bet you so three examples you can use it anytime you almost have a dominant set be careful when it's going to be minor huh use your ears and huh, but again it's a springboard it's a framework for trying out new ideas so here it is again you can add that to your daily routine put it on your fingers and voila so I hope you found this stuff useful. uh if so please consider supporting me on patreon patreon.com isaacraz and um you will find you know screenshots of t his stuff and other transcripts of other videos and some exclusive videos and other content uh just for my patreon members um and again love your feedback appreciate all the great feedback and uh hope to see you on the next one keep swinging in there thanks
