In this tutorial we'll learn the basics of chord melody style playing in a jazz context. The basic technique involves playing or suggesting more than one part at a time. In this case, a bass line along with higher register chord tones that suggest a melody. We'll start by applying this technique to major 7th chords, dominant 7ths chords, and minor 7th chords. Then we'll put them together to play along with some backing tracks.
