Lesson notes

In this lesson you'll learn the classic accompaniment pattern to Herbie Hancock's jazz standard, "Maiden Voyage," from the 1965 Blue Note Album of the same name. In Part 1, you'll first study the form and harmony, and then you'll learn the comping rhythm that you'll use throughout the tune. Finally, you'll place simple 3-note chord voicings and roots in context over the rhythm and play through the form. In Part 2, you'll expand the right hand chord voicings from Part 1 into 4- and 5-note block chords, and add 5ths above the roots in the left hand.
