Re: [Harp-L] practicing jamie ambersol


I've been practicing Ambersol's II-V-I changes (forget what volume) in every key on the C chromatic. When I get bored with these exercises, I work on other material, but I keep coming back, each time gaining a deeper appreciation of how important these exercises are in developing a jazz "vocabulary." These exercises have also helped spice up my blues, country swing, and progressive bluegrass playing.

I know all of you jazz guys are practicing intensely all of the time.
I like to use vol. 21 of Ambersol. I've just started going back to vol.3 that
has the II V changes. One part uses the Dim-whole tone scale.
No big deal take a major scale flat the third start on the 7th degree.
This is made trom the melodic minor ascending. In this case C melodic minor.

So is anybody else using these studies. Will Gallison uses them also.
If so what volumes.
