"Here we go, the 'forbidden' note. Tommaso is really exaggerating with the clickbait lately..."

Oh, I wish I was exaggerating! The note we are going to be talking about is ACTUALLY forbidden in most jazz textbooks. No joke!

And as you guessed already, this note sounds great despite being forbidden. And not only it sounds good, it's actually used in actual music. I present a few examples of the successful use of this note in the video below.

The question is: why this note has been forbidden?

It's because of a weird reason that only Jazz players can understand?

Or maybe there is actually a good reason? (Spoiler: yes there is a good reason. Can you guess it?)

I'll explain everything in this video. One fact though: the forbidden note sounds cool!
