    Re: B7b9

    Anytime I see a 7b9 chord I'm thinking dominant chord of a minor 2/5, and pretty much just play it as a diminished chord and ignore the root. Unless I'm playing bass. I'm sure it's used in other...

    She was a fixture on the street in the French Quarter for several years, but that's not what this is. Some of the French quarter stuff is R rated.
