Coloring the TONIC Minor for a Hopeful & Open-Ended sound (5 of 6)

In PART 5 of our 6-part series of Exploring the “Minor Chord Progression”, we explore various possibilities of coloring the TONIC chord (which is minor). We use Minor Major 7s, Line cliche movements, a hopeful sounding major twist, a “climbing” slash chord usage over the rather long minor tonic and we conclude with an “open-ended” sound to create a curious conclusion. 00:00 Performance
