Watch the Quick Switch & Turnaround online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 4: Rhythm Principles

Quick Switch & Turnaround - Demonstration is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Potenza and is sourced from Jazz Harmony Handbook.


In this segment, we'll add a quick switch to the IV chord in bar 2 of the blues as a typical way to add harmonic movement. We'll also look at the turnaround - a powerful way to set up the return to the top of the form. In the jam track, we have a IIm7/V7 in bar 4 to set up the IV chord in bar 5, and a full two-bar turnaround (F7/D7/ G7/C7/) at the end.
