72 Essential II V I Lines
There are no other chord changes in the idiom of jazz that are used with the kind of perpetuity that the II V I progression provides. Many are led to believe that II V I patterns are diatonic and therefore you can just play the same scale over all three chords. But…this is not how the masters of jazz approach this. Instead, there are a myriad of possibilities to be found by understanding how to create essential II V I lines through embellishing chord tones with applications such as: chromatic approach notes, altered vs. natural dominant chord variations, scale passing tones, diatonic approach notes, melodic cells, mixed major and minor II V I applications and triad pairs (to name a few) that you can continuously discover and apply new and fresh melodic material to your improvised solos.
In this eBook, 72 Essential II V I Lines, bass educator Joe Hubbard has broken this subject down into six different common categories of how the II V I progression is often presented to the improviser. This will include 72 different lines & “flow drills” that outline the II V I progression that will not only help you to get the sound of the II V I progression under your fingers and into your ears as applied to the jazz idiom, but also how it applies to other styles of music. As well as three etudes over well-known jazz standards, including both performance & practice backing tracks.
