Upper Structure Triad

by JazzMaverick (Jul 30, 2011)

There's a C major arpeggio in the second bar, which sounds like b7, 9 and 11 on D minor. This is what we call an upper structure triad.

I've just written a lesson on this so please check it out here: Upper Structure Triads Lesson

A guy named Chuck played this to me a while ago and I found it to be amazing - I mean, what a great progression! Don't you think?
