Re: [Harp-L] practicing jamie ambersol

It's amazing how much Ambersol can help with playing.
You might want to try volume 21 for a little different work out.
I'm wondering if there's a volume that has the tritone substitution.

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.
