Ted’s tips #001

One of Ted’s tips 


Ted always said diatonic chords were very important.

It sounds very nice just playing descending diatonic chords.

As shown in the grids below.  

Also I have added some melodic embellishments for the second one.




Also you can play diatonic chords in 4th intervals,-for example  : CM7  FM7  Bm7b5  Em7 ~

Ted shows some very nice patterns using this concept in his famous book  “Modern Chord Progressions”

Ted highlighted a selection of these in my copy of the book.
