Dave, your coach Well, another huge Thank You to all of you is certainly in order. You see, the input you've provided via email, including your questions and suggestions, has led me to creating this 7th in our series of Sneak Peeks. I truly value your words and the content of this session is reflective of this.
In this "look over my shoulder" video session, which I had a "ton" of fun with, we cover:

Making the most of a little when it comes to being musical

Using Tri-Tone chord substitution to enhance those chord progressions

Developing an appreciation for root movement and how it can determine
when you opt to substitute those chords in your tunes

A little "spin" on the way we usually interpret Tri-Tone chord substitution
that you will find yourself using time and time again in many of those favorite standards

Shearing block chords and how their application can really enhance your personal arrangements

Chord/scale relationships conducive to great sounding improvisations, including
the Mixolydian and Locrian modes, whole tone scale, Lydian b7 scale & Blues scale

Of course, since we are demonstrating these points of interest within the context of these four measures, there are many "peripheral" benefits you'll enjoy by exposing yourself to this session over and over again!

Everything discussed in this session takes place within the scenario of four measures of that very popular classic standard song I Thought About You by Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Mercer. These chords, as shown below, really lend themselves to some interesting possibilities. It is my sincere desire and intent that continous exposure to this fun session, which lasts for almost an hour, is sure to bring you many happy returns : )









Enhance your creativity at those keys!
"Artistry reduced to basics"

Super for those who aspire to develop their own personal cocktail piano style
or who want to spark their own creativity at those keys!
