Watch the Two Fives & Backcycling online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 4: Rhythm Principles
Two Fives & Backcycling - Demonstration is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Potenza and is sourced from Jazz Harmony Handbook.
In this video, we examine the use of the IIm7/V7 progression in three different places in the progression as a way to add harmonic complexity and generate options that can be used at your own discretion. We're introduced to the use of a device known as backcycling, which provides a way to generate optional harmonic movement. Backcycling can be employed in blues progressions or in just about any song.
