  1. I love this !! thank you so much !!

  2. Thank you, you have really amazing lessons. People like you make internet a real cultural revolution!

  3. Thank you! This lesson is very helpful

  4. I'm a bit confuses. At 1:33 you mention key change but the song as written by Erroll Garner doesn't have a key change. Is the "key change" he's referring to an implied key change used in the Real book and is that common? Thanks again for the lesson.

  5. Thanks for reminding me how much I have forgotten since music school.

  6. Thank you Justin.

    I want to add about the Ab-7 Db7 cadence. You've intrepreted it as a two-five progression that has no solution. The more common analysis that I know is that It's a IV- bVII7 cadence aka – Backdoor Cadence.

  7. Thanks for doing this – very helpful.

  8. analyse très intéressante……….

  9. Thank you! This made me move forward a LOT. =)

  10. Thank you! This is great!

  11. Saludos Amigo,
    Excelente trabajo.

  12. Jazz just made so much more sense to me!!!! Thank you so much!! Now I understand why my teacher used to say, "Once you know 2-5-1 in all keys, you can play any jazz song". Thanks again!!

  13. guys who ignore this lesson, let me tell you, that's what music college teaches to students for crazy money. u need to learn at least once. because there must be a reason why the college teaches that kind of lesson.

  14. A good, patient analysis. Thank you, Justin.  Curious thing is that Error Garner didn't read music. Or at least that's the legend.  It would be interesting to try to get into Garner's musical  mind and imagine how he might have put the sounds together. Did he write melody first, then harmony? Harmony first?  Or both simltaneously?  Was each chord a reaction to the last? Or did he know exactly where he was going?

  15. I love this lesson, thank you Justin!

  16. thank you please keep doing this!!

  17. Thanks for the lesson on analysis.  I'll give it a try on a couple standards I'm working on.

  18. Hi Justin. I write from Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I am learning jazz alto sax and as much theory as will keep me out of trouble. Your videos, though for guitar players, are excellent and thanks for putting them up. One piece I didn't quite follow. When you discussed modal interchange and moved from EbMaj to Ebmixo and EbAeolian, you then wrote out the chord sequences. For EbMajor, this went M m m M D m m(b5). = EbMaj7, F-7  G-7 AbMaj7  Bb7  C-7 and D-7 (b5).  

    When you listed the equivalent chord progressions for EbMixolydian and EbAeolian, you used a different sequence. For Mixolydian this went (I think I am right) D m m(b5) M m m M = Eb7  F-7  G-7(b5)  AbMaj7  Bb-7  C-7   Dmaj 7.

    How did you arrive at this and how did you then arrive at a different sequences for Ed Aeolian? What theory am I missing here please?

    Hope you get this message and that I will see a reply. Thanks again, Mike

  19. This is what i'm looking for thanks justin great job!

  20. Thank you Justin. A very good lesson.

  21. Very well done. Will be coming back for more.

  22. Keep them coming, man! Great job!

  23. what is the next jazz standard you are doing?

    also, love this series.

  24. Great lesson, Justin, but I suppose the II chord in Eb aeolian (nat. minor) should be Fm7b5 instead of Fm7.
