In this lesson, I teach you how to start applying 9ths and 13ths to your jazz improvisations. The 9th and 13th of major, minor and dominant chords are great notes that can really open up the possibilities you have to create melodic lines and more interesting solos. These notes give you more harmonic colors to play with and utilize that will make your solos more interesting and compelling.
I give you a PDF with 16 great sounding melodic ideas involving the 9th and 13th in the lines. I teach you how to best practice this material in all 12 keys as well as major 7th, minor 7th and dominant 7th chords.
I demonstrate the concepts in this lesson on the tenor saxophone to chords played on the piano as well as a Giant Steps play along track and give you many tips on how to best practice these 9th and 13th lines.
