FAST TRACK GUITAR SYSTEM


Hey, how’s it going guys. My name is John McClennan
and I’m here today with guitarcontrol.com.
Happy to bring you this lesson. What I want to
demonstrate is a device called common tone, which
is basically where you move through a series of
chords and they keep one note in common. This can
be useful for endings for tunes and this is one of
the ways that I’ll end a tune called “Stella” by
Starlight, which happens to end on this note, F,
if I’m playing it in the key of B flat.

What I do is I do a B flat minor 7 to an A flat 9
to an A flat minor 7 to a D flat 9 to a G flat
major 7 and then a B7 sharp 11 and then resolving
on just your B flat and major 7 sharp 11 chord,
C over B flat or whatever. So that chord would
be 6, 5, 5, 4.

Again, if you hear this through the chords.
A real nice way of doing that. So be sure
to click the link below for the tab for this,
but I’m going to go over the chord shapes
right here. So we’ve got 6, 6, 6, 6 and then
6, 5, 6, 6; 4, 4, 4, 4; and then 4, 3, 4, 4;
2, 3, 3, 2 and then this last chord here would
be 1, 2, 2, 1 and then 6, 5, 5, 5, B flat
major 7 sharp 11.

One more time from the top. You can try playing
them as half notes. one, two, three, four; one,
two, three, four; one, two, slightly toned and
then… Cool. Well, I hope this is helping you
with your jazz chord voicings and we’ll catch
you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
