MODULE 5 - EIGHT NOTE SOUL SCALE
- Adding the #4/b5 as a passing tone

We are going to look at the striking essential to know flavour that is known as the sharp #4 or the flattened b5.Perhaps the most digestiable way to understand it, is as a passing tone from the 3rd to the 5th. Many famous tunes are using this technique, and I will present you with a few of them, and show you how to naturally insert it in your own Jazz vocabulaire.

Awesome Course

I am still in the early stages of this course and tacking it slowly to really try and nail each lesson. It’s a good mix of challenging and fun. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Loving this course

I'm still at the first module of the course and can already say that I'm very happy about it. The material is very gradual and useful, as a novice I can say that my grasp of music theory is getting some bases, while not feeling overwhelmed. I definitely love the whole creative frame and perspective of "emotional shading" and the metaphors that Nick uses in his videos to share his knowledge and experience. Thanks a lot!!
