Now we are ready for a new section!

Most pop tunes, certainly jazz standards, have a main section and a secondary section. In jazz, this is usually called the chorus and the bridge. Other terms can come into play: verse, segue, the "head" (melody or main theme), the A and B section. Lessons 1 through 6 of this tutorial have essentially been a chorus type section playing a "main theme". Now we will move to the IV chord (F major) in order to add variety to our piece and make a secondary section which I will refer to as the bridge.

We will take the same approach as before. First we will simply learn the chords in order. And learn them with each hand playing the same blocked out pattern.
