Rhythm Changes Etude #2

8.00

The Rhythm Changes can appear to be very dense and hard to be free on. An essential part of knowing how to solo on this form is to have several ways of negotiating the chords so that you don’t only have to think about the form in one way. This approach makes it much easier to play solos that develop and don’t sound the same all the time.  

The solo transcription and analysis included in this lesson demonstrates several ways that you can re-interpret the changes and also how that directly gives you different ways to solo over them.
