We start our Chick Corea series today with a line from his famous album , Now He Sings Now He Sobs. Fantastic album everyone should check out. This tune “The Matrix” is a fast blues that Chick Corea wrote. This line is pretty simple yet sounds amazing. Over the II dominant chord Chick plays a G triad but inserts the b9 before the note G. He then plays the tritone of the V7 chord (C7) by taking this line down a half step over the F#7 chord. To resolve over the F he plays F major triad chord tones going down the resolves to the 1 with the notes G A and finally F. Practice taking your lines down in a half step pattern for a different texture and sound. Enjoy!
