Functional Jazz Tecnical Study #1

Picture if you will, a series of studies that offer all the benefits of Clarke’s famous Technical Study #2, written over the chord progression of George Gershwin’s famous “I Got Rhythm” and without all the soul-crushing diatonic boredom.  Imagine then, that these studies could double as an entr√© into the creative world of improvisation and the sacred geometry of the Bebop language. If you can do all this, you have a better imagination than us.

That said, if you would like something fun and cool to practice, this might be your new favorite digital download!  This study is specifically written to be practiced with our new series of Rhythm Section Play Along tracks in all 12 keys, each at two contrasting tempos (sold as a separate download).
