Imagine you are taking a trip to somewhere you’ve never been before. You probably don’t want to look like a tourist, but you’re not sure how to blend in and you don’t know the language. What you need are connections! The right connections will help you avoid awkward moments and allow you to fit in as you adjust to your new surroundings. Of course, the foreign land on your itinerary is jazz piano and the local language is improvisation. The connections you need to step out with confidence in jazz piano improvisation are chromatic neighbors. Without them, you will certainly sound like you’re not from around here. Thankfully, this Quick Tip will give you the connections you need. You’ll learn:

– Upper Neighbors
– Lower Neighbors
– Modes
– Diatonic 7th Chords
– Improv applications
