Tonic Subs

Substitution is part of the language of jazz. We can ‘sub’ on Tonic chords, playing a Minor lick on a Major chord and vice versa.

MINOR ON MAJOR

Getz Lick: A minor Lick on C Major chord

MAJOR ON MINOR

Leading Note Lick: A minor Lick on C Major chord

(We can also sub a Dominant lick on a Tonic chord:

Flat ‘9’ Lick

But not a Tonic lick on the Dominant!)
