    Autumn Leaves Jazz Piano Rootless Voicings

    Rootless Voicings expand on Guide Tones by adding two more notes, typically the 5th, 9th, or 13th. These notes give Chord Shells musical color because they utilize extensions . Lets take a look at some more colorful chords:

    Here weve added some nice extensions: the 9 and 5 on major and minor chords, and the 9 and 13 for the dominant chords. Try playing these chords individually while you play the root with your left hand. For example, here is how you add extensions to the A minor 7 chord:

    There are some weird notes we played for B7, but it still sounds pretty cool right? Those notes are altered notes, and they sound great on dominant chords. For reference, the alterations here are the #5 and #9. To learn your chord extensions and chord alterations in all 12 keys with exercises, checkout our Piano Chord Extensions course and our Piano Chord Alterations course.
