Getting better…

I felt a small breakthrough last night while practicing jamming over How High The Moon. That was really to think about the ii V Is that pervade it in each key and the chord shapes of those within that key, for example, from bar 3 the key is in F, so the ii V I is Gmin7, C7, Fmaj7. I was playing in 10th position and outlining those chords in that area, fiddling around the scale and *even* daring to do a bit of Altered Dominant messing around by subbing the C7 with a C#MinMaj7 chord before resolving onto the F.

Feeling a bit better. Still not jazz, but results are getting more fluid. I then transposed to Eb and later C, just to get the shapes down.
