This lesson features a classic pop-funk tune that is often played in the jazz repertoire. The song features a 4-measure chord progression that repeats throughout the intro, verse, and chorus. An interlude, which uses different chords, is also part of the form. Despite the repeating chord cycle of the song, the intro, verse, and chorus all sound distinct from one another. We will discuss how these cyclical chords are made to sound different as you enter various sections of the song.
In this course, you'll learn a new standard every month. Each standard will be broken down into both simple and advanced arrangements so this course is great for players of all levels. You'll learn how to create both a solo and group arrangement while also learning two-handed comping and improvisation.
