Well, I´m not really as lost at the title might suggest But still I´d like some tips. I´ve bought these nice backing tracks for straigth 2-5 progressions: http://www.playjazznow.com/chartMAJTURN.html As for now I´ve just been working on my walking lines, and I think it´s very helpful. I get plenty of time to try out new ideas and memorize them, considering each track clocks in at four minutes plus. And it´s so much more inspiration thand band in a box. Anyway: Have you guys got some tips on what to practise with these progressions? I´ve been messing around alot on the chords and major scale, but would like to know if you have any specific exersises or whatever that I can apply. Btw, I just learned how nice (although abit cheesy ) it is to add the ninth on the dominant (fifth) chords. That´s what it´s called, right, ninth - when I play a Ab on, say a G fifth chord? Or have I got it wrong?
