This lesson covers one of the most helpful chords you’ll ever know—some might even say it’s the ultimate jazz chord, the tritone augmented chord. Don’t let the complex name fool you. This chord is relatively easy to form and gives an immediate “jazz” sound to almost any chord progression.

Johann Sebastian Bach composed this piece around 1710 as part of a much larger work. It has since become one of the most recognizable melodies in the world. It is in the key of G with a consistent triplet pattern used throughout. Occasionally a non-standard fingering is required and those fingerings are notated with the small numbers above or beside certain notes. Performance tempo should be 40 bpm. Arrangement by Steve Krenz.
