Rootless Left-Hand Chord Voicings for Piano – ‘Type A’
“Rootless voicings” on piano (especially for left-hand support) are great for handling big jazz chords that normally can’t be covered by one hand alone. This video tutorial shows you how to play a rich sounding II-V-I in the left hand, while allowing the bass player (or you, on another beat) to cover the root.
This is Part One of a pair of lessons, covering “Type A” voicings. The second lesson, covering “Type B,” shows another way of executing the same idea, only with the notes in a different arrangement.
