hi everybody!

i'm ready to work on the ''rythm changes'' in all twelves keys.

what are those those definite changes...for a beginner.

i don't want fancy reharmonization or chord substitutions...

just the basic changes.

thank you in advance.

i vi ii v
bridge: circle of fifths starting on the major 3rd of the key.
add extensions.
think numbers, not chords. then you can play it in any key.
since i learned this from dexterity i put a ii in from of the d7 in the bridge.  i think you could do that with the whole thing couldn't you?
right !! putting a 2 ifo a 7 almost anywhere, works. i try it all the time charlie. also a tri- tone-- substitution.
