I have played the violin for several years so I have fundamental knowledge in some areas, however chords are currently opaque. For instance, I can play the melody line for any jazz standard by ear basically, but with chords I have very little intuition and mostly end up guessing what chord that comes next (when playing by ear). Is that an A? D? No? How about a C7? This is a struggle, but I don’t think more scores is the solution. I think scores basically “gives me the fish” instead of me learning how to get there on my own, and hence I try to only resort to the score when I’m thoroughly stuck. My idea is to “build my ear” by for instance playing arpeggios but it isn’t giving results. I guess another way is more theoretical, say chord progressions and that sort of thing. Any ideas for how to get a good connection for chords? Any material I should study?
Voicings can be complex patterns. One example is Keith Jarrett’s I got it bad, see the transcription: https://www.keithjarrett.org/wp-content/uploads/I-Got-It-Bad-and-That-Aint-Good-Keith-Jarrett-Transcription-by-Sam-Leak-2018.pdf . That’s way over my head but my current idea of going in that direction is to build a vocabulary/repertoire/library/tool-box of voicings, by learning one by one. But this is dog slow! Anyone got an idea for learning voicings?
