Listen to this:

No focus on 1:50 as he talks about it...

Fascinating! I've been working on this not knowing what it's called!

In fact reading on how the 5's dim 7 or the sharpened 5 dim 7 both work in other apps is the solution to what my ears couldn't figure out!

Also things like ommited the roots since the bass or keys has it.

Complimentary chords like relative minors or sneaking in say a Cmaj7 for a G, etc...

Loving this stuff.

Thanks for the linkies, strum. Will check out as soon as I'm done with this paper on hay production and the necessary machinery.

Chord subs are what make jazz, GD music, and any improvisation interesting. They are what give the music a more complex, :smile: expansive quality, and we all know that is a good good thing.

I have nothing to add except that this thread warms an old theory geek's heart. :cool: Knowledge is good!

Off topic but I thought all you need is a hammer and duct tape.
