    I'm looking for a free program (please no trials without save options) that I can use to program II-V-I changes. I'm learning how to play walking bass, and II-V-I seems like a nice starting point. However, I need some chords to play walking on, preferably guitar or piano.


    Cheers

    How about Audacity? Record yourself playing a ii-V-I progression (bass chording or using another instrument you've got available), trim the ends of the file so that it's the right length (eg. 8s for a 4 bar snippet at 120bpm) and hold down the shift key before clicking on the play button. That puts it into loop mode, where it will happily cycle round all day.

    It's not the same as programming the changes but is completely free and may be a quicker, easier solution if you don't really want to climb that particular learning curve.

    btw, is it possible to make an audiofile out of your transcription?

    In Finale 2006 it's File -> save special -> save as audio file

    Maybe it's the same in Notepad
