Don’t know to call it jazz or not. Tritons is probably more jazz than anything. Some people obsess over that word ‘jazz’. and the meaning of it. Here, a few days late I’m sharing some practice ideas for jazz guitar I’d say. Including a little groove that was at first just harmonic exploration. After I added groove to it. Experiment with it… Tell me if you some thoughts or whatever. Tritone example – just chord tones for F dominant chord combined with B dominant ( tritone away – it means three tones) , for those musicians or guitarists who doesn’t know or understand the concept of tritone substitution it’s basically replacing any dominant chord with a dominant chord a tritone away. The reason why it works is – if you analyse all notes in the B7 you will notice that they do match with the notes of F7alt. B7 notes = B , D#, F# and A. So when looking from F7 perspective B is b5, D# or Eb is b7, F# or Gb is b9 and A is major third. I hope that makes sense for the humans who didn’t know this concept. A little bit of music theory here… for you jazz guitarists and other instrumentalists…
Regarding the groove example with harmony exploration. First part is variations of G7alt chord movement,
