The 5 Stages of
Advanced Modern
Harmonic
Progression

To play jazz proficiently, you'll need to learn the 5 stages of modern harmonic progression.

Stage 1

Tertian Harmony

Sure, we all know what a chord is and how to play one.  But, creating great music requires you to know more than simple chords.  Graduating to another level of improvisational performance requires a very advanced knowledge of harmony. This is the foundation upon which your core competency will be built.

Stage 2

Modalities

For most people, scales are boring. To a true jazz artist, scales are everything.  You can’t really expect to become a great improviser without learning what scales go with what chords. But for any given chord progression there are many different scale choices, which ones do you go with and why?

Stage 3

Rhythm

All music, even ballads, has rhythm. Rhythm is what makes music stick to your soul.  Unfortunately, almost every young or inexperienced player seems to have the same problem, they’re all putting the emphasis on the wrong beat. And as a result, their music never seems to groove the way it should.  Sure, it’s definitely a feel thing, but it can be learned with accurate instruction and specific repetitions.

Stage 4

Patterns & Riffs

Jazz is a language, and like any language, you need to hear it, understand it, then duplicate it. If you do not learn this language, then your music will always be missing a recognizable sound the the listener is inately expecting. You cannot ignore this.  And frankly, I’ve not seen anyone in the online world come close to providing an intelligent way to go about this. But, the system that I learned, and have honed over many years, will definitely make a huge difference to your playing.

Stage 5

Inspired Creativity

Whatever your musical goals are, when you embrace the first 4 stages you’ll eventually come to a point where music just makes total sense.  At that point, you begin to see that there are no limitations.  You’ll learn to produce music that is infectious, inspiring, original, and ultimately creative. As a former recording artist I’ve felt what this stage is like, I would love it if you could get there and surpass it.

Wow – thanks for picking this one up. It caught my ears and I really struggled to work out what was going on. Brilliant job – looking forward to the follow up. ❤️” Martin Waugh

Brilliant..all killer no filler.” RaDeum

Thanks Paul, another great one. I’m building out a practice routine with these changes and scales too. Specifically on the bebop and chord tones. Any suggestions on how incorporate this with “playing over the bar line” ideas? I thought I noticed that you do that really well with some of your longer lines Thanks.” Winston MacMahon
