Easy Jazz Piano Voicings

Jazz piano voicings seem like a mysterious thing to many people.  If you know your scales, however, you can construct jazz piano voicings. There is some very basic math involved, but it’s just counting within the key.    If you can count to 13 and know your major scales, you can construct jazz piano voicings.

This is a PDF of some easy jazz piano voicings, all based around “C.”  There is room in the PDF to transpose these voicings to the other 11 keys!  As I’ve said, the numbers you see are based off of each major scale, and so it definitely helps if you know your major skills before you start trying to transpose voicings into all 12 keys.

Some basic major, minor, dominant, diminished, and half-diminished voicings are shown in the PDF for two-hand comp voicings and for left-hand voicings for piano solos.  These voicings are very useful beginning jazz piano voicings.  They sound much better than block chords, but they aren’t too complicated.

Click on the link to the PDF of Easy Jazz Piano Voicings.  Transpose the voicings to All 12 Keys!  Optionally, there  is room for you to take the numbers in the key of C and transpose the voicings to other keys.

I hope you find this useful!  If you do,  please consider sharing.  Enjoy!
