Avoid Notes – JAZZ PIANO TUTORIAL

In this jazz piano video tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn what “Avoid Notes” are. Much like there are ‘strong’ notes within a scale (called guide tones – see related video here), there are also weak notes. Notes that do not quite fit harmonically into the chord that you’re playing.

These notes are called avoid note. Avoid notes can be used as passing notes, should not be over-emphasised or sat on for too long as this will make your solo sound dissonant.  Avoid Notes can be used to build tension and as such can be used as an improvisation technique, but do be careful when using them as they sound intentionally unpleasant.
