Watch the Voice Leading online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Voice Leading - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Sheryl Bailey and is sourced from Bebop Dojo: Essentials.


Voice-leading means what it sounds like - connecting the voices of the chords in stepwise motion, or in the smoothest motion possible. This avoids awkward leaps and makes your lines smooth and flowing. You need to know your arpeggios in and out so that you can be seeing and hearing ahead into the upcoming chord change. Chords are moving objects!
