  • Hi GMC!

    In this example I will demonstrate how modulations can be used instead of regular chord changes, how changing tonality instead of harmony can be very effective and useful.
    We have two basic chords Dmaj7 and Dmin7, and at the end a four chord sequence, Bmin7, E9, Amin7, D7-9. Both Dmaj7 and Dmin7 are approached in traditional way, D major over Dmaj and Dmin/pentatonic over Dmin7.
    In the last four chord sequence I used simple arpeggios to approach harmony, and over D7-9 I played D# melodic minor which is typical jazz "move".
