You are doing a great job. Keep it up.

Im not familiar with some jazz terms like "Jazz pattern 5432." What is that?

Thanks Corey!

A 5432 pattern is series of notes that is very common in improvisation. A 5432 over a C minor chord, for example, would be the notes G (5), F (4), Eb (b3), and D (2 or 9). The 1235 pattern is also used a lot (popularized by John Coltrane).
