  1. can anyone explain why the Dm7 works to resolve back to C? I get it's the 2 of they key he's going back to, but it's not in A. On the way from C to A the Bm7b5 bridged the way because it's in both keys right? But there's nothing like that on the way back?

  2. aren't you doing something different than he did tho? you set up the VI by a ii V of the vi and used modal mixture… but Quincy made the IV into the bVI if he was doing a bVI bVII I cadence to B

  3. like the videos a lot, nice and straight forward. I have a request if possible, any tips and tricks for getting proficient in all keys, ive been playing for many years but I'm still struggling to feel natural in several keys.

  4. I wiped my phone screen 3 times before I realized, that's your mouse on that B1 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Awesome lessons btw!!! The tri-tone sub ideas are opening up a world of possibilities for me! Thank you!

  5. hi jeff you might want to look at. "after the love is gone" . EWF 1979. not exactly the same kind of change, but
    some smoov and tricky shizzl. minor7 chords moving up by whole steps preceding
    random sounding ii V resolving to the next key, a half step up. from Bb maj. to B major. . i'd hear EWF or changes like this on the radio and say "wtf?" now after watching this i finally looked at the changes for "after the love is gone" thanks for finally putting my mind at ease . now i will write using the neo picardie thang and those smoov Al Foster/Bill Champlin changes

  6. The past couple of days I have watched your videos and I really appreciate the simplicity and modal theory behind your explanations. I learned by books and numbers. The biggest help was the bebop scale explanation. Rhythmic/Harmonic balance. Makes soooo much sense. You seem pretty hip and strong on your axe. Keep up the good work. You have helped me a lot. Peace to you.
