I’ve been watching some other stuff on YouTube and have got myself very confused regarding some of the other different approaches to jazz harmony from the usual 2-5-1 and tritone substitutions
In particular could someone explain the following:
Back door 2-5-1
A tutorial on these would be great and I suspect they may be explained somewhere on Pianogroove tutorials but at the moment I can’t find them
Thanks Greg, very helpful.
I think I’d got this but then went down the rabbit hole of negative harmony having watched a YouTube video with Jacob Collier and got totally flummoxed! If I’ve got it right, a negative harmony approach would result in Bflatm6 - Fmin6 - Cmaj7 which is kind of the opposite of the back door 2-5-1.
Hence why I was struggling. Also I don’t understand the theory behind the back door approach - why does it work?
I think I’ll leave the negative harmony stuff now
