    Here's a quick vid featuring two chord shapes that I have found very useful for Jazz, Blues and R&B. I learned them from Ted Greene decades ago.
    F dom to Bb dom movement with a cool passing/embellishment/approach chord - the altered V7.
    Hope you like it ...

    I love the combo of digital and analog :) (i.e. the sheet of paper)! I'm going to check this out again at home when I have a guitar to grab. Also going to check out your other videos, so thanks for posting them! I see some woodshedding in my future......By the way, I always love the tracks you post here in the various challenges.

    Did you use a pre-CBS pen or pencil for that real vintage vibe?;)

    Not vintage but it is a very boutique ball point pen from France - le Bic.

    I didn't get into it in the video but those chords (how they're stacked) are what a horn section in a big band would play, especially the saxes. And, to some degree, piano voicings.
    b7 3 6 9 5 low to high is a classic way to voice a dominant chord (functioning as I or IV) across five horns.
