How can I turn any (pop) song into a jazz song?
I tried jazzying up Bad Day by Daniel Powter. It's basically a D-G-A chord progression (1-4-5), wich is quite simple. I thought that adding 7th chords and some altered timing, would at least give it a bit of jazz feeling, but instead it all just sounded very dissonant. Do you have any tips or ideas on how to make a jazz cover of a song, or make it sound more jazzy? Is there a jazzy variation on the 1-5-6-4 progression?
