Watch the Tritone Subs online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from Solo Guitar Handbook
Can you imagine that tubist or bassist just goin' nuts!? Truth be told, the tritone sub was not really invented by a bored tuba player in New Orleans, but most likely a bored tuba player in Germany, Italy, or somewhere around 1830 or so. Honestly, jazz musicians get their panties all in a bunch over the originality of jazz, but everything jazz musicians have done harmonically, was pretty much done by classical musicians 100 years or so earlier. Most of jazz's contributions to musical form have to do with rhythm, and in many cases harmonic rhythm (the timing of chords changing). That's why so many jazz musicians are into comedy...and so many comedians are into jazz...'cause the real secret to jazz is...timing!
