How To Analyze Chords and Progressions

We analyze chords and chord progressions because it is very important to understand how the music flows, and also to figure out what to play and how to play when we solo over it.

In this video I am going to take a well know jazz standard, "There Will Never Be Another You", and use a step-wise method to analyze the song.

Understand the chords and the progression and find out what scales go with the chords. This will go a bit beyond just recognizing the II V I's and also help you really understand a lot of progressions in jazz!!

As a musician I find that knowing and using music theory like this is really helpful when studying pieces and sight-reading charts. For me it helps me hear the music on the page, the changes and the color of the melody. For that harmonic analysis is a very useful skill!!

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this music theory analysis helpful and enlightening!!

Please check back next week for another lesson, and in the meantime please catch up with me on my website and social media pages!!
