Wish you would actually ‘play’ these examples. Good and to the point video tho.

Kali Das says:

Great video, clear and easy to understand

Kent Ong says:

Escape Tones are mostly on strong or weak beat?

Nicholas Shannon says:

Here is a silly question… what do you call in a C Major chord…. C down to A back up to C? Is that a neighbor tone or an escape tone? The first C is on the beat with a dotted 8th to a 16th A and back to C on beat 2.
