Downbeat woodshed article

Post  Hamnod on Sat Mar 16, 2013 2:49 pm

Hi Mr Vizzuti
I just read your informative article which I would definitely utilize in my sax warmups as a beginning student. I do have two questions which seems confusing: in example 8 in the 2nd measure, for AMa7, aren't both C & G supposed to be #? Also under chord symbol discussion, you mentioned Cmin7 has 3 flats. It's the Ab that needs explanation please. Thank you!

I am on the road with out a copy of the article but it appears as it I made a boo boo regarding Amaj7. Indeed this chord symbol indicates both a C# and a G#. Thanks for that.

In the Cmin7 example, C minor has 3 flats as the relative minor to Eb major right? The A natural is the Dorian note relative to the C minor scale - #6. (All Dorian scales are created using the natural minor scale with the alteration of a #6th tone). It's a nicer sound in most cases than the natural minor note of Ab.
