Podcast #40 - Quartal Harmony and Fourths Voicings for Jazz Guitar JazzGuitarLessons.net Podcast

    • Music

In this episode we decipher the whole mysticism behind "voicings in fourths", also called quartal harmony. The first few voicings on Miles Davis' "So What" immediately come to mind when think about quartal chords.

In the first part of the podcast, we'll discuss voicings built in fourths "under" all the notes of the C major scale, as their top notes ... and learn how to create so-called "quartal inversions" of those.

In the second part of the podcast, we'll discuss real world applications for chords such as Cm7, C7 and Cmaj7(#11) ... all using quartal-based chord voicings.
