Watch the The 5 online guitar lesson by Bill Evans from The Language of Improvisation

This lesson is about putting more clarity into the role of the “V” chord. It also explains when to use it and the kind of phrases can you play with it. It also looks into how to put more “color “into the “V” chord to add life to a phrase. The reason why this chord is so important is because it will add color and personality to your phrases.

I also demonstrate how to alter the “V” chord and resolve it back to the “I” chord. I describe the different ways of accomplishing this on my saxophone.
