Wes Montgomery’s chord approach using Barry Harris’s 6th diminished scale

Wednesday Sessions: March 2, 9, & 16.

Wes completely revolutionized the possibilities harmonically for playing chord in a melodic context. He superimposed moving harmonies into  stagnant places harmonically within songs and chord progressions. In this three week course Much of his ideas for doing this can be found in Barry Harris’s approach.

In this class Prof. Sher will unravel that, show the specific chord voicing that Wes used, present examples and help students to develop this technique in their own playing. He’ll also present a transcription of Wes playing Round Midnight, which features an almost symphonic eight bar chord solo on the bridge! This is a three week section.
