Jazz Chords 01
Do you know your chords? Well, if you are studying KS3 music then you'll have to get to know them. One group of chords you may look at is the one used in jazz and this quiz will help you to learn them.
Both major and minor chords are used in Jazz. Performers will express chords in their own way, for example, a G chord may be played as a G7. In jazz, musicians often add a seventh, a ninth, an eleventh or even a thirteenth to a chord to get that distinctive 'jazz sound'.
"If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together," according to Richard M. Nixon. That's certainly true in jazz music - notes are seemingly added willy-nilly!
