GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

PLEASE WATCH VIDEO FOR IN DEPTH ANALYSIS:

Before starting it is important to note that these principles are to be applied to major, minor, diminished and augmented: In this overview we will use “Major”only.

PART 1: Triadic

First we will take a simple C major root position triad. We can move DOWN a 1/2 step or UP a half step from the last note to connect the next triad:

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Predictable Example:

Here we can see that just adding another root position triad creates a non random and predictable sound.

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Correct Approach Example:

Here we create freshness by employing “Inversion” and “Displaced Permutations”.

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

What are Displaced Permutations?

This means that we change the order of the notes. In this case although they are both in root position the order of the notes has been changed in the second triad. Hence this moves away from a more traditional sound/approach.

Also, because the last note is the 3rd of C Major it is considered a 1st Inversion:

Now lets add another triad to this:

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Predictable “Improper” application:

Below is an example of predictable repeated connections/patterns:

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Correct Application Example:

Here we have an imaginative less predictable and more random sounding line.

GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

PART 2: A Chromatic Approach:

Within the interval of a Major 3rd there are five 1/2 steps. [We will use C to E as an example]

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

These five 1/2 steps cannot be used in a consecutive manner and must stay within the interval of a major 3rd.

RANDOM Chromatic Method: EXAMPLES

Here are some example of how this works

Example:1

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Example 2:

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Example: 3

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

ii V7 I’s with applied Chromatic Approach:

Here are two examples where the George Garzone approach is applied

Example 1

george, garzone, triadic, chromatic, approach,
GEORGE GARZONE -“Triadic Chromatic Approach”

Example 2

Michael Brecker Chromatic Jazz Guitar Line Exercise

PLEASE: Watch video above for detailed analysis:

This Michael Brecker sax line is an excellent exercise for alternate picking guitar technique. The key is to accent the 1st and 3rd notes [Downstrokes] as this will keep the chromatic 4 note “Even” groupings smooth.

The employment of chromaticism and target tones [deliberately “Even” for alternate picking] scale fragments and an arpeggio makes this an extremely useful exercise for linking together improvising ingredients.
