: I'm confused about mordents: does that include trills, turns etc? When do you play the trill ON the note written and when do you play it on beginning on the note above, same with turns.
: Also, does anyone know of a good jazz link to help me with my chording? I need to learn all of the 7ths, blues scales etc. Thank You! I appreciate it.
A mordent is an ornament consisting of rapid alteration of the main note with a note a step below. This is known as a lower mordent. When a note consists of an alternation between the main note and a step above, it is called a trill. We will get back to you shortly with a Jazz link.
