Jazz School: Major ii7-V7-IM7 Etude: Diatonic Chord-Scale Pairings

Lesson Goal: To develop fluency with the diatonic “chord-scale” pairings for the workhorse ii7-V7-IM7 chord progression in all keys…

Pattern in the key of C Major…

Using your knowledge of the major scales and chord structure (and your ears of course), play this pattern in all keys around the cycle of dominants: C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, B, E, A D, G.

Learning by doing in this manner will build an enormous scale and chord vocabulary that integrates visio-spatial keyboard awareness, ear training, technique, and rhythm… and lays a solid foundation for fluent improvisation.
