LESSON DETAILS
Diminished Harmony 3
In this lesson we will cover four important uses of diminished harmony: 1) Diminished chord reharmonization, 2) Harmonizing melodies using diminished chords, 3) Using diminished scales for improvisation and 4) Diminished and Slash Chords. These four techniques are practical because they are most often used in live situations and are important for any gigging musician to know. We will use the song "It Could Happen To You" as an example.
LESSON COLLECTION DETAILS
In this collection, we will dig into "practical" diminished harmony and learn how to use diminished scales and chords in our improvisations and arrangements. You might also hear these techniques referred to as "Barry Harris" chords.
