The Turnaround is a progression of chords that is commonly used in the last two compasses of a subject and has the intention to lead back the harmony to the agreed I of the tonality. There is a great variety and different forms to touch turnaround, one of the most common and important progressions is the following one: I - VIm - IIm - V7 That translated in the tonality of serious greater C: Cmaj7 - Am7 - Dm7 - G7 Now on the base of this progression we are going to make a pair of variants that give like result a more interesting sound. Example 1 Change of the quality and the addition of a little tension. Cmaj7 A7#5 D9 G13 As you can observe in this variation we changed the smaller chords by dominant chords, which gives the opportunity us first to have different colors harmonically speaking and also it gives the option to be called on other scales us to be able to develop a rich improvisation but as far as musical language. Example 2 Substitution by tritones.
Cmaj7 Eb9 Ab13 Db9 In this variant, we are changing the dominant chords by other chords dominant that is remote of a tritone (three complete tones). For example: A7 distances of 3 tones = Eb7 D7 distances of 3 tones = Ab7 G7 distances of 3 tones = Db7 These dominant chords are interchangeable because they share the same tritone. These are some variants that you can use to enrich your form to touch chords, exist many variants but, reason why it is important that always you are experimenting and looking for new forms to touch the progressions of chords, by all means would take to develop much more ample a harmonic leguaje to you. Another important point that you can experiment with these two variants of turnaround is the use of investments, it will surprise the different colors to you and sonoridades that you can obtain. For other opinions and approaches, find out what Douglas Oberhelman has to say. It remembers that to select the chords correctly you must always consider the melody. Asegrate of which the notes of the melody are notes that correspond on the scales from where the chords are born that you are going to use.
