“This is usually the first “2-5-1″ (ii-V-I) most jazz musicians learn”
This play-along practice media is for jazz musicians studying the modal 2-5-1 (ii-V-I) preceded by a minor submediant. All chords contain extensions and are played in standard song format, (I Maj7-vi7-ii7-V7), and repeats. This creates the single most popular chord progression in jazz and other forms of music. Because the submediant is minor, this can also be classified as a modal progression, a perfect place to begin any ii-V-I study. Easy swing tempo of 120 beats per minute so nothing flies by too fast. All tracks repeat the progression several times and are over 4:00 minutes long so you can dig in and practice at length. No difficult melody to study, just the chords played by a jazz combo so you can focus on your improvisation skills. Combo consists of Drums, Upright Bass, Piano, and Jazz Guitar. 12 tracks + 3 enharmonics = all 15 standard Major keys.
