All About 2-5-1s!

Jazz theory is a hairy monster for many folks, which is why I am creating tutorials to explain some of the most important concepts.  It’s not hard – it’s just a little bit different.  In this tutorial, I am going to walk you through the theory behind the most commonly found chord progression in jazz:  The 2-5-1.  I am going to show you where it comes from, what to do with it, how to practice it and how to identify it in every jazz standard out there.  It’s fun – I promise!
