Ralph Pratt's 'Tonal Centers' web page

Ralph Pratt is the pioneer of the 3rds guitar tuning.

Here is a resource for learning to hear jazz chord progressions. Most jazz standards move through different major and minor tonal centers as the song progresses. Listening to songs that contain the same or similar chord progressions and tonal center shifts, can help learning to recognize them:

I like Ralph's site. I wonder about some of the chromatic chords, such as bIII in "Well You Needn't" Is it significant in a Monk tune or is it what makes it a Monk tune. Just looking for as many changes to Monk tunes as possible and found some good ones on here. cheers, Bill
