Just like a baseball player sliding into home base is unnecessary in compared to just running home – so can sliding into certain “home” notes of a chord. Yes, this extra accented passing tone is note needed, but it can give some cool flavor as well as style to your music.
As you are playing a chord progression, try using these accented passing tones in relationship to the chord:
- Seventh goes to the root
- Second goes to the third
- Sixth goes to the fifth
…and with sliding motion if your instrument allows you to!
