In this lesson, we talk about understanding diminished harmony and using diminished chords in context. We dive into alternative diminished voicings, as well as the illusive Diminished Major voicing and how to use it.
This piano lesson will provide you with beautiful new voicings and ideas for the song My Funny Valentine. We walk through a good portion of the song chord by chord, discussing some new and different voicings, as well as classic ways of looking at the chord changes. My Basic Piano Voicings course with video examples will leave you with a much stronger arsenal of voicings. Get your copy here: http://jazzlessonvideos.com/piano
