    Your post attempt failed. The code got corrupted somehow.

    Default ii - V- I

    This maj 3rd cycle is one of 4 possible. Simply transpose up or down in half steps to cover all four. Good warm up for have you met miss jones and, perhaps,giant steps.

    Maj 3rd Cycle by Joseph Cannavo

    This is one of two ii v I descending in whole steps. Simply transpose 1/2 step to get other one. Enjoy!

    Default Coltrane II-V-Is

    Anyone wanting to practise Coltrane subs on II-V-Is should load up Countdown.

    The tune is Trane's reharm of Tune Up (which I prefer to credit to Eddie Vinson, rather than Miles).

    The original key is Bb, and the tune uses II-V-Is in D, C and Bb. Transpose to Db, E and G, and you'll have practised Trane subs in all keys.

    Default Minor and Tyner

    Minor Blues by Impromptu

    Bit more idiomatic for hard-bop era things like Mr PC.

    And this:

    Trane/Tyner Blues by Impromptu

    For that slabby, '60s modal vibe. Trane and Tyner used this template very freely - try treating each dominant as a sus chord, or focusing on pentatonic scales and planing up and down by semitones. Actually, as long as you hit the landmark chords in bars 1, 5, 7 and 11, just about anything goes in-between!

    Playlist containing all 2 songs:
    My Changes

    Individual songs:
    G.S. Practice 1st System by Unknown Composer
    G.S. Practice 2nd System by Unknown Composer


    These are the first two systems of giant steps. They have been doubled up so they can be slowed down even further.
