but your skills are not yet complete
BTW, Vader plays Dixieland banjo for fun.
So I was outside sitting in the shade of a pinon playing the progression we're working on and started singing this:
Now that I've lost everything to you,
You say you want to start something new,
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving....Baby, I'm grieving.
Yep.....it's a wild world.
Somehow I hear that I Nimoy's voice...with banjo accompaniment.
Not to get off target, but even if you are not a jazz player, these chord changes - maybe not the whole cycle, like the songs fezz has used as examples - will come up in all sorts of musical environments.
So many jazz tunes are built one them that it seems a "jazz" thing, but it isn't it's a music thing.
Submediant in chain of fifths.
vi–ii–V–I in C
In music, the vi–ii–V–I progression is a chord progression (also called the circle progression for the circle of fifths, along which it travels). It is "undoubtedly the most common and the strongest of all harmonic progressions" and consists of "adjacent roots in ascending fourth or descending fifth relationship", with movement by ascending perfect fourth being equivalent to movement by descending perfect fifth due to inversion."
There may also be the odd altered 4th or 5th movement...but that's just a little variation like from a CMaj7 to F#m7b5 to B7 to Em at the end of "Autumn Leaves".
I post these easily searchable Wiki articles because they are worth reading to learn about music theory.
this tune uses a little bit of the circle:
" From the 1970s to the early 2000s, elements of the piece, especially its chord progression, were used in a variety of pop songs. "

14 million views. Amazing.
And that’s why I’d never become a jazz guitar player
Thank you so much David for your constructive comment and motivation. I was struggling to not sound bluesy in the solo. I tried to follow the changes and adding some dissonance. I’ll listen to your example to get a better idea of soloing in jazz. I’ll give it another go this weekend. Many thanks sir!
Thank you brother I don’t trust that guy but I trust you
Watching TV the other night and the AD break came on, and I heard 'Sunny' by Bobby Hebb, well a small part of it. the chord progression or at least part of it sounded familiar,
Am (miss out Dm and G) C7, F7, Bm7-5, E7 and repeat.
He plays a nice jazzy intro on this live version.
I didn’t publish this because it’s incomplete. The solo part is slightly better than the one I shared last night.
A few problems after a month off playing, so excuse crap notes and duff timing in the start. One run through as far as I could go then faded out when my arm was getting very tired.
I'm impressed. If I come close to that I'll be happy.
Get well soon Mr Bit
Thanks a lot my friend You can do way much better than that for sure Remember..feel it, sing it a long, don't think much, let it flow smoothly. On top of all, have fun!
nice ideas in the solo
I also like the syncopated rhythm licks here and there. Once or twice you were "searching" but overall that fits the chords well.
Good getting back to 2nd head.
Again, good progress.
another good clean tone choice - I like hearing the variety
head sounds good....
I like where you are going on this....some cool ideas in the solo...good use of melodic groupings.
Nice bends, too.
When the arm is not so tired, I'd love to hear more.
Thanks for joining in.
Thank you once again David for bearing with me I hope that Jass Jassington doesn’t ask me to the leave the stage lol.
Really thank you for encouraging me
Describe me well
QUESTION FOR WORKSHOP MEMBERS
We are at the halfway point this month, so what would help any of you with where you are now in the learning process?
For me personally, nothing but time. I don't really have any problems grasping theory, it's the execution that throws me.
And that's where the on-line forum is not as good as me sitting next to you and suggesting ideas about improving execution, beyond the obvious "practice more".
Phrasing and soloing is my dilemma. @heltershelton once told me that nobody can teach you to become creative. I need to listen more to songs to build a memory of phrasing.
Listen and try to imitate the phrasing you like.
Aye, but it's still a whole lot better than me noodling by myself in front of the TV
