Extended chord progression week 1:

In our first Extended Chord Progression we play the chords; Major 7th, minor 7th, Major 9th and minor 9th. The progression gives of a calming vibe if the chord changes are performed smoothly.

Extended Chord Progression week 3:

Smooth jazz comping, making use of en-harmonic modulation to easily switch between keys. Some new chord shapes to learn as well such as minor♭13 and 6 sus2 chords.


Extended Chord Progression week 4:

This one involves open chords, a tricky chord shift involving an E minor add 9 and a big stretch for your pinky!


Extended Chord Progression week 5:

This week we are slowing things down with a really smooth progression. The chords are relatively easy in comparison with the previous weeks so you should be able to grasp it a little bit quicker.


Extended Chord Progression week 6:

This week we have shared a low-fi gloomy Jazz sound using lots of new 9th chord shapes to learn and using Major 7ths to resolve the tension throughout.


Extended Chord Progression week 7:

I decided to build this weeks extended chord progression on dominant 9th chords; using both Diminished 7th and half diminished chords for tension, A 6th chords as passing chords, and a couple of Major 7ths to release the tension at the end of the progression.
