More Jazz Chord Work (Level 3+)
Here are a few more songs form The ULTIMATE FAKE BOOK – called the “Real Book“.
The first TRICK to getting the full bodied sound of the “jazz” chords – is to AT LEAST add the notes that define the chord.
- Major, and minor. – make sure the 3rd is sounding (added) (could be melody note)
- Augmented, diminished, and half-diminished. – Make sure the ONE NOTE that makes it aug. (#5th) or dim. – (b3rd and/or b5th and bb7th) is sounding (added) (could be melody note)

Let’s open these 2 solos – direct from the REAL BOOK – and see if you can ADD THE CHORDS
