FAST TRACK GUITAR SYSTEM


Hey, how’s it going guys. My name is John McClennan
and I’m here with guitarcontrol.com, and what I’m
going to show you today is some unique jazz voicings
that you can use as endings to tunes. This sequence
of chords demonstrates something called common tone.
And what it is, is a device that you can use. You
move through a series of chords, but one tone remains
consistent within all those chords.

So in this first example that note is F. So this first
chord I’m going to begin on is a B minor 7 flat 5,
which is 7, 7, 7, 6. Then I go to a B flat minor 7,
then I go to an A minor 7 sharp 5, which is 5, 5, 5, 6;
A flat 13, 4, 4, 5, 6; D flat major 7 which is 4, 6, 5, 6;
G flat major 7. Again, there’s my common note, F.
The frets are 2, 3, 3, 2. And then finally ending on
your home key, F major 13. I love this chord. Just a
real nice sound. So maybe you end in a C. Just a real
nice way of ending.

Again, notice that note, F, that’s common between all those chords. Be sure to click the link for the tab and we’ll see you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
