Lesson notes

In this jazz theory lesson, we’ll go over a sort of quick reference guide for how the 3rd and 7th, also known as Guide Tones, resolve when progressing through the circle of 5ths with different types of chords. We’ll explore Major cycles, minor cycles, Dominant cycles and two­part combinations of those three types of chords. Memorizing these harmonic patterns will help you find chord voicings more quickly when you’re reading through changes.
