    Here is the next video, a chording device Barry calls "borrowing". It is taking a sixth diminished chord and borrowing notes from the diminished above or below in the sixth diminished chord/scale and substituting those notes into the chord. We can then resolve them or not. A great way to make chords move more. You hear bebop era piano and guitar players do this all the time.

    I've been digging Hayes' thread Tiny Moore Tuesday. Tiny had a lot of Bebop in his playing, you could tell he was paying attention to what was happening at that time. Serious Jazz players should learn a number of his solos, you'll be glad you did.

    This and the next 2 videos in the Barry Harris for Jazz Mandolin series looks at the common western swing song Right or Wrong. This video is a chord melody.

    Next two videos will be soloing and comping using Barry's ideas.

    Thanks for the kind words Pete! You're totally right - Tiny was hip to what was going on in the world of bop. This is an awesome chord melody, can't wait to see the next couple of videos!

    Here are comping ideas for Right or Wrong. I wrote these as quarter, half and whole notes to make reading easier, so use your own jazz timing ideas with these voicings.
