Watch the C Major online guitar lesson by Christopher Woitach from Jazz Textures
In this section, we apply the technique of expanding a simple voicing using scales to a C major type chord, the same way we did for the D minor type chord earlier. We'll also learn about six note scales, and how to use them to create chords that don't include any "avoid" notes that could clash with harmony. We'll also move the chord up and down horizontally, creating a multitude of voicings.
The concept of six note scales is a worthwhile one for you to pursue, even outside the context of jazz textures. Six note scales are very useful for soloing over jazz tunes - very compact and melodic. An interesting exercise is to create six note scales using a chromatic scale as the basis. There are quite a few combinations of six pitches in a twelve pitch base, and some are combinations you might not think of any other way.
