Jazz Basics Lesson #3: Common Forms

Hello there. Firstly, I'd like to apologize for not putting out a lesson for a few weeks. I'm gonna try to be more regular with this but I can't promise anything at the moment.

This lesson will focus on the two most common musical forms for jazz: 12-bar blues and the 32-bar form.

Before going more in-depth with each form, know that almost all jazz music follows a basic pattern for musical structure. First, the ensemble plays through the head of the tune (the piece's main melody) once or sometimes even twice. Afterwards various players in the ensemble will take turns playing an improvised solo over the chord progression of the head. After a number of players get a chance to solo, they finish the tune playing through the head one more time. The 12-bar blues and 32-bar form are simply the forms in which the tune's head is played.

Starting with 12-bar blues, this is the form you will see in almost all blues pieces written. This from also has a chord progression that all blues follows. While there are variations to this chord progression, in its most basic form the progression is (all chords are dominant 7ths):

I (4 bars) - IV (2 bars) - I (2 bars) - V (1 bar) - IV (1 bar) - I (2 bars)

An important various to the blues progression is know as "Bird Blues" as it's Charlie Parker's variation on the 12-bar blues. I won't go over it in detail for this lesson but perhaps in the future I will.

The second form we'll look at is the 32-bar form. This form comes in a number of its own variations, but the most common in jazz tunes is AABA. This variation starts off with an 8-bar "A section" melody that is then repeated, usually with some variation (A'). Afterwards, there's a new 8-bar "B section" melody (also called the bridge) before it finishes off the last 8 bars with the "A" melody again (or A').

Of course, these aren't the only forms in jazz, but they make up a good majority of jazz charts ever written. If you have any questions let me know in the comments. I'm also looking for suggestions for the next lesson if you have any. I hope this was helpful for everyone.

June 2019 Competition


As of now, the group is still being set up, but I do plan on having a competition for June. I do expect it to take a few months, though, since there are not enough members. Please share this group if you do discover it.

Update: Thanks to everyone who has joined! Only a few more days until the first competition starts. I am taking suggestions for the banner and icon for the group, if anyone has ideas.

Feel free to add whatever ornaments and articulations you like and don't be afraid to improvise! This piece could last forever if you wanted it to, whatever you can come up with just improves your enjoyment of it! I hope you can have a lot of fun with this one.  



Leo P

I'm going to be honest here. I think Leo P is a good bari player, but the stuff he gets attention for isn't really that impressive. My two year old niece could probably squeak a bari sax, as could anyone; therefore, Leo P shouldn't be getting as much attention as he does. If Leo can get famous by biting reeds, anyone should be able to.

The Denver Nuggets or Portland Trail Blazers will get break at them in the Western Conference finals. At that point the Eastern Conference champions — the Milwaukee Bucks, the Philadelphia 76ers or the Toronto Raptors — will get their opportunity, as well. 

However, it's presumably worthless. 

In the event that the Houston Rockets couldn't stop the Golden State Warriors on Friday night at home, before a sellout swarm at the Toyota Center, with the Warriors maybe more powerless than any time in recent memory this season, it's exceedingly far fetched any group can. 

"With them, you can't commit a psychological error, not for a second," Rockets mentor Mike D'Antoni said after the Warriors beat his group 118-113 in Game 6 and secured the arrangement. "... Clearly they present a major mound, and we simply didn't get over it." Kevin Durant, sidelined by a stressed right calf and expected to return amid the Western Conference finals, was in Oakland recuperating from a stressed lower leg muscle in his correct leg. 

What's more, Steph Curry was scoreless in the principal half, having missed each of the five of his shots and submitted three fouls, abandoning him on the seat for 12 minutes. 

Amid that stretch of defenselessness came the principal intimation of how incredible the Warriors are. At halftime, the amusement was tied at 57. 

"These folks are a verifiably decent b-ball crew," Warriors mentor Steve Kerr said. "You don't do this, you don't do what these folks have managed without an extraordinary blend of ability and character. I could go down the rundown, yet I thought Steph embodied that today." 

In the wake of stinking up the joint in the main half, Curry scored 33 points in the second half. He shot 9-of-15 from the floor and made every one of the 11 free tosses, incorporating eight in the last 34.5 seconds. However, while Curry demonstrated again he's grasp, the Warriors likewise uncovered something new. Their seat, as far as anyone knows the most slender it's been amid Golden State's kept running of three NBA titles in four years, is intense. With Kerr approaching even little-utilized stores like Quinn Cook, Golden State's seat outscored Houston's seat 33-17. 

Klay Thompson helped keep the Warriors in the diversion with 21 in the principal half and 27 on the night. In any case, Houston's Chris Paul noticed the exhibition of Andre Iguodala, ordinarily dominated by the Splash Brothers. 

"They state make the different folks beat you," Paul said. "What's more, Iguodala, what number of 3s did he hit?" 


"Five out of eight," Paul said. "They state make the different folks beat you, and they beyond any doubt did that." 

For the second year straight, the Warriors wiped out the group that appeared to have the most obvious opportunity to beat them. 

"We're not losing to certain scours," Houston's James Harden said. 

For sure, on a night they ought to have been conquerable, the Warriors look like champs once more.

Jazz Basics Lesson #2: Common Chord Progressions

Hello there. Since I've become an admin for this group I'm now gonna try teaching everyone here basic jazz elements. This lesson will talk about common chord progressions in jazz.

Common Chord Progressions:

As @EthanHarris has already stated, the most fundamental progression in jazz is the ii-V-I (in C: Dm7 - G7 - Cmaj7). It's also known as a circle progression since it moves through a cycle of fifths. 

Another common progression is the minor ii-V-i (in c: Dm7b5 (or D half diminished) - G7b9 - Cm7). 

Another common progression in jazz is the iii-iv-ii-V or I-iv-ii-V (in C: Em7 - Am7 - Dm7 - G7 or Cmaj7 - Am7 - Dm7 - G7). This is basically another circle progression but extended to start on the iii or iv chord. Often times the iv chord will be turned into a dominant chord making it a V/ii instead (in C: Em7 - A7 - Dm7 - G7). 

Of course, there's also the minor version of this progression (in c: Ebmaj7 - Ab7 - Dm7b5 - G7b9). This one is less common than the other progressions but it's still used in some tunes. 

Almost all tonal jazz is based on these chord progressions.

I hope this lesson was helpful to anyone trying to learn and understand jazz. For those who already understand jazz, feedback about anything I may have missed or gotten wrong would be appreciated. I would also like everyone's opinion about what the next lesson should be. I'm thinking about either doing a lesson on chord extensions or the relationship between chord progressions next. Let me know which one you'd like to see next or if there's a different topic you'd like me to teach next. Hope everybody learned something with this.

Alex Volkanovski comprehends you may not know him yet.And that is OK."But in a half year time," the Wollongong warrior cautions, "individuals could be calling me one of the best UFC contenders ever". 

When a stocky bramble prop with Warilla Gorillas, Volkanovski will all of a sudden become one of the greatest names in the Australian battle diversion this Sunday on the off chance that he can disturb unbelievable Brazilian Jose Aldo at UFC 237 in Rio de Janeiro. 

Should he win, the 30-year-old Sydneysider will more likely than not be pitched into a title battle with UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway. 

Better, UFC authorities have just examined the capability of holding said session on a similar Australian card as middleweight champ Robert Whittaker, who is set to guard his own gold tie against rising New Zealand wonder Israel Adesanya. 

On the whole, Aldo; the Brazilian extraordinary who, while referred to easygoing fans as the man Conor McGregor kayoed in 13 seconds, once went the best piece of 10 years as an undefeated champ. 

Without a doubt, while Volkanovski is on an undefeated run extending five years and 16 battles — including every one of the six Octagon appearances — the Aussie will enter UFC 237 as a +105 dark horse with Las Vegas bookmakers. 

Aldo, in the interim, is - 135, or the second most brief cost of any principle card contender. 

However having finished the vocation of American most loved Chad Mendes last December, and with an imaginable shot at Holloway his reward for winning, Volkanovski stays persuaded he can guarantee three UFC greats inside a year.

"Also, I express that with no disregard to Jose Aldo.

Furthermore, concerning beginning a dark horse with bookies? 

"Couldn't care less," he says. "Individuals were stating something very similar before the Chad Mendes battle and, for that one, I was more formed than any time in recent memory. 

"For me, Aldo is simply one more man over the enclosure. 

"On the off chance that anything, being the longshot gives me a lift. Like 'no doubt, you think?'." 

Ought to Volkanovski upset Aldo, his administration will quickly push for a battle with Hollaway, in all probability as the co-primary to Whittaker versus Adesanya. 

Albeit precisely when that card is held, and where, stays obscure. 

As uncovered by The Daily Telegraph on Monday, Team Whittaker are fervently contradicted to battling on October 6, a similar day as the NRL terrific last. It is comprehended that date has been talked about, with Bankwest Stadium, Marvel Stadium and Suncorp Stadium every single potential setting.

Jazz basics lesson #1

I am summarizing this lesson from reddit.

The first thing that unfortunatemuso states is a really important chord progression.
It is - ii V I (so if you are in c major it would be (Dm G7 C)

Try making a song based on that chord progression and let me know in the comment if you do. I know I know it's short. But at least it is something
