The Jazz Piano Course: Chord Substitutions explained and demystified! (Lesson 3)
Welcome to the only free, full online course for jazz piano soloing and harmony. In the third lesson we will discuss chord substitutions, focusing on how certain chords can be "substituted" for other chords because they fulfill the same functional (diatonic) role. For example,. the subdominant (major 4th) can be replaced with the supertonic (minor 2nd), turning a 4 5 1 progression into a 2 5 1 progression.
