ahhhhhh!!! all i want to know... is how the fuck do you get a #5 b5??!?!?! the idea of two 5th's, appears to a complete contradiction, a paradox, a fruitloop in a box of cocopops. the only way it seems to me, is to have a natural 11 (+one semitone above), a natural 13 (+one semitone below). and noth...

|x56789|

Here we go again.... "How do we tell the difference between a #4 #5, and a b5 #5 ?" It's all context man. The different between a #4 and a b5 is context. A b5 assumes that it's actually the interval of a diminished 5th. A #4 (or #11 in chord lingo) assumes that it's actually the interval of an augme...

I (hate to) agree with kpxm89, but I really struggled with sweeping at first because of my pick size. I used to play with these fairly fat picks. I now play with super thin wobbly picks, and the thinnest possible hard ones depending on what im playing. I have no problems with sweeping on either; giv...

I didnt ask for lectures on what bebop was and is. I know what bebop was and is, and its further sub-genres (hardbop {which is what i would call theo}, neobop, smoothbop etc). Miles Davis may have been the father of 'cool jazz'(Miles Davis Nonet) and fusion (Bitches Brew, On the Corner), but he did ...

E Maj add 9

D add#4 (or 11)

How does your progression go?

I thought it sounded great resolving the D add#4 on a high A5
|xx2255| and continuing as such...
|EMaj add9 |D add#4 |A5 AMaj |Dm9 CM9|

Dm9 |x5355x|
CM9 |x3243x|
