Re: Berklee Audition Tomorrow

It went well actually: My prepared piece was good. He did some ear training by playing a line and having me play it back, I got most of those even the ones that had some chromatic stuff in them and he said " very good" when I got those ones xD, but the really long ones got me towards the end. He had...

Playing a Melody in Jazz

Ok lets say I am playing Autumn Leaves with a friend of mine, we both take turns doing the melody and improvising. The melody sounds so different when he plays it from when I play it, same notes, except a little embelishment here or there but it sounds totally different. That is okay in Jazz right ?...

Re: Secondary Relatives ?

No, secondary dominants is another thing... You harmonized that scale wrong o.o its B minor 7 b5 And secondary dominants are just using the dominant of X chord to resolve to it even if it is from another key I V of I C major 7 - G 7 V of ii D minor 7 - A 7 V of iii ( and so on ) E minor 7 - B 7 F ma...

Re: Why use natural minor for melodic minor descending?

Nah, minor 3rd would be F-Ab.

You can't call Fs minor 3rd G# because you have G as the major 2nd in that minor scale, so you call it an augmented 2nd because you raise the major 2nd by a semitone. They sound the same though. ^^

Re: 13th chords as substitutions

But lets just say theoretically somebody plays the whole chord. If the bassist plays D it could alter the chord because Cmaj13 has the same notes as Dmin13 C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C Cmaj13 and D-E-F-G-A-B-C the Dmin13 ( remember we are playing them completely although that never happens). Wouldn't a C maj 13/...

13th chords as substitutions

I was thinking of 13th chords And I thought well if you play a full 13th chord ( maybe on the piano cause you cant on the guitar) the chord will be named according to what the bass is. So what if I play a 13th chord and the bass player gives me a different bass note ( that is inside the key) it will...
