George shares how to apply what you’ve learned about approach patterns in the previous lesson, and shows how to get the first approach pattern under your fingers. The object is to approach each chord tone in the chord. These will be the target notes, or the notes where the approach notes resolve. Target note chord tones are played on the beat to outline the chords in the progression.
