How to Play-`Giant-Steps´-by-John-Coltrane-Jazz-Guitar-Lesson How’s it going, guys? My name is John McClennan and I’m here with, bringing you this video lesson. We’re looking at the chord changes to “Giant Steps”, John Coletrane’s amazing tune. We’ve looked at a few examples going over the first four bars and now we’re working on the next four bars, starting on a G major 7. So be sure to click the link below for the tab for this. Here we go. We’ve got 3-4-4-3 for the first chord. And then B flat 9 for the next chord. This is going to be 6-6-5-3; going to E flat major 7, which is 6-5-3-3; to an F sharp 13, which is 2-2-3-4 and then resolving to a B major 7: 2-4-3-4. Then we go… A nice little II-V-I movement going from F minor 11: 3-5-4-6 to B flat 9: 6-5-3-6 and then resolving on an E flat 6-9: 5-5-6-6. A great little cadence there. Be sure to click the link below for the tab and let’s do it together one more time. So here we go. Real nice jazz voicings. Thanks for watching. See you next time.
