Hello everyone,

I thought I'd share this handy 2-5-1 jazz practice backing track with you!

It takes a major 2-5-1 progression through all 12 keys in the space of 30 minutes! Real nice as a warm-up and for transposing your 2-5-1 licks into every key Smile

The progressions move up in semitones and the track has no comping - so you've got lots of space to improvise/solo/comp as you wish..




Chord progression:


II: Dm7 I G7 I Cmaj7 I Cmaj7 :II


Then


II: Ebm7 I Ab7 I Dbmaj7 I Dbmaj7 :II


And so forth....


(see the video for each progression as the track goes on)




In theory, you can start by sticking to the relevant major scale in each key - as in C major scale on Dm7 - G7 - Cmaj7.


Next up, I'd try outlining the chord tones/arpeggios:


Cmaj7 arpeggio = c e g b


Dmin7 arpeggio = d f a c


G7 arpeggio = g b d f


Playing C Major scale will result in C Ionian (Cmaj7 chords), D Dorian (Dm7 chords) and G Mixolydian (G7 chords) - all the same 7 notes!


Next up, I'd recommend trying out some more advanced colours on the dominant chord (G7/G13) by using the


G diminished 1/2-1 tone scale = G Ab Bb B C# D E F (G)






....and then repeat in all 12 keys for a proper jazz workout!
