JAZZ PIANO THEORY – Chord Extensions & Alterations

In this jazz piano theory tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn what jazz piano chord extensions and alterations are. The teacher covers how to think about, build and play extended chords.

” Basic chord structures:

– Major7 (1, 3, 5, 7) – can be extended
– minor7 (1, b3, 5, b7) – can be extended
– Dominant7 (1, 3, 5, b7) – can be extended
– Diminished (1, b3, b5, bb7) – CANNOT be extended
– Augments (1, 3, #5, b7 or 7) – CANNOT be extended

Chords can be extended with:
– 9
– 11
– 13

And these extensions can be flattened or sharpened.

Other types of chords include
– Major6 (1, 3, 5, 6)
– minor6 (1, b3, 5, b6)
– sus4 (1, 4, 5)
– sus2 (1, 2, 5)

Chords are written with the highest extended note on top. So for example a
– C13 has the notes, C, E, G, B, D, F, A (includes the 9 and 11)

If you want to play just the 13 without the 9 and 11, you would write it as follows: – C7 add13
This denotes a dominant 7 chord with an added 13 (no 9 or 11)”
