For a while I have been interested in creating Jazz arrangements for some classical peices so i could jam on them and see what kind of new sounds i can get from them. So tonite I began but quickly hit a brick wall. My chord theory knowledge is growing but in context to classical music i know very little....
the peice i was interested in doing was Air on the G string... A beautiful tune if you ask me.
The Chart i have created. for the A section.
Cmaj | Cmaj/B | Am | Am/G
Fmaj | Gmaj | Dmaj |Gmaj/F
Emaj | Dmaj | Dbm | Amaj
Dm | Dm/C | Bmaj | G
Cmaj | Cmaj/B | Am | Bm/F#
Gmaj/ Cmaj | F#m | Gmaj | G |
Basically it sounds ok at the moment, im still experimenting of course,,, but if anyone could suggest better chords to use or voicings ect... also, that F#m doesnt seem to be correct at all but i dont know what else to do!?!?!
This could be a big ask since one might have to learn the peice to really help... if so .. LEARN IT!!!! Its easy Seriously though... Im stuck and want to stir up my 'Classical is not jazz, and if its not jazz its not music' teacher next performance.
