@Bill from November Sound, he's asked about the tritone!! This might be a FORUM CLEARER!!!  :o :o :o
Don't worry @Jim  ..... I'd say (at least this thread) it's pretty clear.  :)
Tritone subs are always a good time. Me, I'm favoring poly-tonality a little more these days. Think 9, 10, #11, 13 over all major chords etc...

Ok, all that makes sense @Jim. Are you referring to the B7 over the lyric "blue?"

That would be a tritone to F in the key of Bb.

Indeed!  ;D

Cool.  8) That one takes you through the basics then into a fairly good coverage of the jazz lexicon...and it doesn't cost the earth, like some of these books do.

Ooo, polytonality...I do like that stuff, Stevie Wonder has quite a lot of that going on when you analyse his work (or watch videos where someone else has for you  :-[)...I've not explored it a lot in my own work for practical reasons, namely that with 6 strings you're a bit limited on the guitar and with only one good hand it's a bit tricky to play even two triads simultaneously...so because I haven't had it "under my fingers" as it were I haven't explored it much.  Maybe that should be my next challenge, regardless?  ;)

@Jim I'm getting into the book Jazzology, and it is excellent, and the Teachable course by Rob: http://musiciansinspired.teachable.com/
is awesome! He is a great teacher, uses hit songs to illustrate his points, and although I have known about modes for years, I don't think
I've written a song that uses modal chords.

I'm going to write some songs in specific modes, or borrow chords from modes, so I can have these techniques at my fingertips when writing.

Thanks again.
