to learn vocabulary andhelp you navigate chord changes.

Practice tips:
Play through each one several times to hear how they sound.
Find one you particularly like and practice it in all 12 keys starting from the original key.
This will help you internalize the sounds and connect them with your instrument.
Once youve completed that process, take a couple more of them through all 12 keys,
and then diligently practice them for an extended period of time. Repetition is key and
practicing over longer periods of time will help them become second nature!
Learn other I-VI-ii-V-I licksfrom recordings you like, or come up with your own.
