    Listening to a YouTube track while following an iRp chart that's an accurate transcription is helpful.
    Finding a chart that actually matches a random youtube is a challenge.

    Try this:

    Search the forums for “source track” to find some excellent transcriptions of specific YouTube’s.

    (Thank you CyrilleB and others)

    Whole Tone Practice.

    In case you don't know, there's only two whole tone scales, since you are either starting on C or C#.

    A few more teaching songs I made.

    Three songs with slower moving chord changes.

    Digging into Chords 1 - Brian Streckfus

    Digging into Chords 2 - Brian Streckfus

    Digging into Chords 3 - Brian Streckfus

    Then a couple of more difficult songs that work on the diminished scales (Whole Half Scale) and chords. The whole half scale in these two songs is:
    C C# D# E F# G A A# C
    Which to my ears, works throughout the whole song.

    It was a fun experience because it lead to bizarre chords progressions rather quickly.

    Default internal time challenges exercise

    Be sure to turn off the drums. Looping sections is recommended.Use modulation and feel free to change the chords. Do a variety of tempos.

    Don't post a playlist as the songs in a Realbook if the changes aren't from the book.
    If you do transcribe changes from a book put it in the title RB1, RB2, GGB, Sher, etc

    Default Burn-out

    Music Students or new to iReal pro?

    As you study the details and “rules” of musical form or find that iReal pro needs more attention to “structure” than you may be used to, it can be overwhelming and you may feel the onset of burnt-out.

    You may even consider dropping out of music altogether.

    If that should happen, take a breath, go back and listen to your favorite recordings, make music with your friends, do anything you can to remind yourself why
    you loved music before you started studying it.

    An education in music can be a very good thing, but it can also squeeze the life out of any love you ever had for it.

    Don't let it.
