Voice Leading Within the 2-5-1 is a free jazz guitar lesson by Guy Fenocchi. By using specific chords in a progression you can also create a melody through harmonic movement. Guy will teach you how to play the 2-5-1 in both C and F with voice leading chords. In the first example, the highest note of the chord voicing (2nd string) creates the melody. From D-9 to G13 it stays the same, then drops a half step for G+7, and again for C9. In our second progression, the melody will move up. Click to view the notation.
