Meet Aimee Nolte

Gang, this is Aimee; Aimee – the gang. She’s a prolific YouTuber (channel here) and I recommend you spend a couple of hours in her company. There’s not a lot she hasn’t already covered, or doesn’t plan to cover, but I’ve picked out this one.

Somebody was asking me a while ago about how to harmonise melodies with upper structure chords. Well, here Aimee shows you that, and a lot else besides, with a little help from some bloke called Bill Evans…

Ms Nolte has a really good knack for pacing you through really quite detailed stuff in an easy, engaging manner. It’s often presented at the piano, but occasionally from a skateboard… v California…

(I’m waiting for her thoughts on Chick Corea’s 500 Miles High during a HALO jump… Action jazz…)
