Daily Practice 3: -7b5 chords

In this practice video I’m working on minor 7 b5 chords or half diminished chords.  I’ve found that by just focusing on the 4 notes of the 7th chord (tetrad or tetrachord) I strengthen my understanding of the structure and basic sound of the half diminished chord.  Doing this over time has made it easier for me to improvise over this chord which I find one of the harder sounds to become comfortable with.  In this example I play up and down the 7th chord in all keys in triplets, I also improvise some in triplets using just the 4 notes of the 7th chord.

~Enjoy!
