Monday Music Quote: Louis Armstrong and Smooth Jazz Chords



  • "Man, if you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know."

Back in 2006 my friend, Cmajor13 in the zone, shared some smooth jazz chords with us. It's a nice ballad. The numbers that are on the side of the notes are the number of beats the chord gets.

B/ADE ... 1-2

E/AbCDF... 1-2

A/GBCE... 1-2

G/FABbD... 1

C/EABbC... 1

B/ADE... 1-2

E/AbCDF... 1-2

B, A, B, C, D... this is a melody line that you can do with both hands.
