    Default ii-V-I Exercise

    This is a ii-7 V(b9) I progression in every key, chromatically. I've found this very useful for practicing turnaround licks.


    Chromatic ii-V-I Cycle

    I corrected and completed the "Lazy Bird" changes exercise, plus the other one also was missing the last measure bar.

    Giant Steps, Excerpt #2

    Lazy Bird Pattern (fifths) (4 meas)

    I suggest, if I may, to lable Composer (last name) as Exercise, in line with the original iRb ones, or at least with same name - keeps things tidier.

    Edit: I noticed the info in the composer fields are performance notes. Perhaps you could change them just for uploading to the forums. My 2 cents.

    Edit 2012: improved title.
