Imaj7-VIm7-IIm7-V7 in all keys (Swing Style)

This playalong helps you to practice in all 12 keys!
Included are 12 tracks in mp3 format and an improvisation help sheet with chords and scales in all 12 keys!

The chord progression as well as the AABA form (32 bars) is very common in all musical styles - so you learn more than just the scales!

Here you generally have 3 options for practicing:

1. Just use the pentatonic of the key!

2. Improvisation beginners: just play the major scale of the song and try to find nice melodies. The best way is to put the root in the middle of your lines, in the beginning (start and end your phrases with the root!)

3. For the advanced player: only play chord tones in the beginning, then tensions (9,11,13) thus internalizing the „turnaround" in all keys.
After that, try to build in the b3 in major chords and the b5 in minor chords. That will give your melodies a bluesy colour!

These playalongs are in medium tempo, so that the beginner could easily play along with them. If you would like to have them faster or want to leave out one instrument (bass players, piano players or drummers) just send me an email and tell me your wishes!
