Watch, listen, learn and play along with Rich on his original jazz/blues tune "Kickin Back." He'll explain chord substitutions and chord progressions for a minor blues with a jazz feel that gives you insight and equips you to play other songs in this style. He discusses, demonstrates and rehearses the melody, chord comping, reharmonizing and three solos with you.
Sometimes the best way to start is just to dive in and learn a common jazz progression. Countless songs have been written around this progression, so it's a great place to start. We'll examine a minor jazz blues original tune by learning three cool sounding solo choruses, three ways of comping this song using chord substitutions plus study the melody and chord intro. We'll also discuss what jazz is and introduce the jazz vocabulary which will be useful with other jazz standards.
Here's a video of the tune "Sugar" which is similar to "Kickin' Back"
