Thread: Jazz Practice Exercises

  1. #541


    Writing out a progression in all keys is a good exercise in itself.
    Be sure to check out the practice setting (gradation hat icon).
    It will automatically shift/transpose your chart (or looped section) up or down the interval you choose each cycle.
    You can write just one short sequence and automatically step up or down through all 12 keys.
    Remember to turn practice mode OFF when done using it.

    Thanks for sharing your chart.

    I absolutely do understand the Practice features underneath the Graduation Cap. Sometimes itís important to see how these changes transition you to all the keys, which is why I did The Fifth Minor that way.

    Below is a better solution to practicing the Lady Bird turnaround changes that were previously posted. This track is designed to transpose up 5 semitones on each repeat and gives you a more logical-sounding way to work on this important turnaround.

    Thanks for your help in teaching me how to post these correctly.

    Pedagogical/Etudes/Training Songs

    I'm a guitar teacher. I figured I would post for what it is worth, others may find these songs to be useful. Every song has a teaching purpose. You can try and reverse engineer what that purpose of the song is, or just ask me and I can explain what I would say during a lesson.
