I've been grinding Rhythm Changes for 4 to 6 weeks now, for the THIRD time... and today, it clicked: Playing along to iRealB I was able to hear my way through the changes without a chart.... in... musical ways. I believe that my subconscious finally absorbed all of my transcriptions and was able to piece the fragments together into coherent, but truly improvised, wholes. Truly, a milestone for me. RC, competently, was a tough hoe for me. So now, I think I can pass the Rufus test. What's next? Passing the Hearle test - every sub ever. Back to the shed!
