Rhythm Changes and The Blues are probably the two most important chord progressions that you need to master if you want to play jazz guitar and especially Bebop!!

This lesson is going to go over 3 different approaches to play over the rhythm change, each one demonstrated with a 4 bar lick and some exercises.

Since Bebop the chord progression from I Got Rhythm has been used countless times, for great bebop themes such as Anthropology, Oleo, Dexterity, Moose the Mooche etc. In fact about 30 percent of all Charlie Parker compositions are on Rhythm Changes!!

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this discussion helpful!!
