JAZZ PIANO THEORY – Rootless Voicings

In this piano tutorial made by PianoPig, you are going to learn what rootless voicings are. Rootless voicings are quite simply a chord, or voicing, without the root note. They have many different purposes. One of them is to stay out of the bass players way and not clash by duplicating the root note.

Another reason is by not playing the root note, you have more fingers to play more extensions add more harmony to the voicings. In the video, the (cool and great) teacher demonstrates a chord progression with the root note in each chord, and then he turns each chord into a rootless voicing to see the difference it makes to the sound.

MY OPINION

An excellent tutorial that shows you a very cool way to add variety to your chord progression using rootless voicings.
