JAZZ PIANO TUTORIAL – Improvisation – Guide Tones

In this jazz piano video tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn what guide tones are, how to use them and why they are important. This is an important improvisation technique when playing ‘inside’. Targeting Guide Tones creates a strong and professional sounding solo.

Essentially, guide tones are the 3rd and the 7th of a chord. They are the key notes that give that chord its character. When improvising or writing a melody, it’s important (at least to begin with) to focus on the guide tones. This makes your improvisation or melody sounds strong, pleasant and professional.
