Major Thirds Moving In Whole Step Motion

Through #5 and b5 of Dominant 7th Chords (Full Range)

by Tim Price

left corner  

Check out the Major 3rd Study with your Band In A Box, or just comp the chords and play the line (and parts thereof) over the chord.

This is a very in and out type sound used by many modern players today. The chord opens at the b5 or #5. Go slow, listen and remember... you’ve got to play it against the chord to hear it.

See "Bird-ology Study"
