    So now we've got the tools that we need to solo over minor, major, dominant, and half-diminished chords, as well as ii-V-I sequences in both major and minor keys. Let's put it all together!

    This month we'll get some practice applying our skills to ii-V based tunes, specifically the standards Blue Bossa and Autumn Leaves. GF walks us through a 4-step process for exploring the harmony and building a solo. Then he gives us a sample of melodic comping (as you might play in a trio situation) as well as a sample solo before letting us off the leash to shake our thang!

    Let's do this.

    I'm trying! I'm back on Chapter 4 and working on transposing "Blues For Charlie" in different keys. The exercise has turned out to be more difficult than expected. Add to that, I'm relearning a couple of chord melody Christmas tunes. Need. More. Time. Cheers.

    I'm going to have to use this thread as a place holder. I'm guessing I won't be here until Christmas. This book is just so rich --if you take the time with it. Nothing is mind blowing unique, but somehow it is incredibly comprehensive.
