Watch the SECTION 1: Major Blues Harmony online guitar lesson by Frank Potenza from Jazz Harmony Handbook

We'll begin by playing through a major blues using extremely basic voicings made up of guide tones, which are simply the 3rd and 7th of each chord. Then, we'll add color by extending these voicings to the 9th, 11th, and 13th, and by the use of reharmonization techniques.
