For this workshop, we’re focusing on the Bebop Minor Blues, a minor blues chord progression that takes elements from the Traditional Minor Blues, and adds on with more chord changes and colors. We will cover root position 7th chords, left-hand chord shells, walking bass lines and chord pops, learn a new melody, an original solo using solo techniques and scales, and then a final arrangement that brings it all together. Since many of today’s minor blues use this format, it is a must have in all jazz pianists’ bag of tricks.¬† And, best of all, we’ll have a lot of fun learning and playing together!
