A few days ago I wrote a tune with some Coltrane Changes in it, so here's a slick little pattern I like to use when playing tunes that contain that harmonic device. It begins on the 5th of the maj7 chord, descends down the arpeggio, then moves down a half step to the 5th of dom7. Then, beginning with that 5th of the dom7, you can think of the next 4-note cell in two ways. You can think of it as the 5, 13, b7, 9 of the dom7 chord, or you can think of it as a minor 1235 pattern of the root of that dom7 chord's corresponding ii chord (so, for F#7, you'd be thinking of a 1235 pattern of C#-7).

"Follow the Leader" - Before you tell me this is a terrible idea, allow me to attempt to explain myself๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
.
I am calling it this because the chords are moving in major 3rds... this causes it to circle around back to the root chord without feeling like we have gone anywhere... the movements don't have the "pull" or "direction" like traditional harmony. This is loosely based off of the idea of the "Coltrane Matrix" that John Coltrane used in his tune, Giant Steps. .
Ok, sorry I went all #musicnerd on ya.๐Ÿค“โœŒ Really what I am saying is the Leader isn't leading us very well๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Trying out a concept from a Bach cello suite over the Coltrane matrix. Gmaj7 Bb7-Ebmaj7 F#7-Bmaj7 #jazzguitar #bach #coltranematrix

Practicing the tune I'm gonna play for the #berklee placement test. :). Satellite! #johncoltrane #coltranematrix #jazzguitar
