POLYPHONIC TWINS - 2 Part Chordal Etude (All The Things You Are)
This “2 Part” Chordal Etude demonstrates how to apply the material presented in my Polyphonic Twins Volume 1- (3 Note Voicings) book and chordal study over standard jazz chord progressions and forms.
The main approach of what I call “Polyphonic Twins” is a very fun way to look at harmony on the guitar from a geometrical and pattern oriented perspective. The basic concept behind this way of harmonic navigation is to find unique physical shapes (patterns) for certain voicings of your choice and then try to move the same finger pattern up and down the fretboard as well as reposition it on different string groups to find out the many different chord qualities that can share the same geometry (physical layout of your fingers) in all ranges of the instrument.
In Part 1 of this chordal etude I demonstrate how we could use only one physical shape - Polyphonic Twin #6 - for a 3 note voicing to comp the entire chord progression of the well known jazz standard - “All The Things You Are.”
In Part 2 I add to the mix what I call “reference voicings” (more standardized and common chord fingerings) to give some contrast and a new harmonic point of view to the voice-leading presented in Part 1.
