Improve Your Jazz Chops: II V I Progressions on Guitar

The most common chord progression in jazz is II V I.

Here’s some II V I’s to have fun with.

This should give you hours of fun. 🙂

II V I’s

My students who want to hone their jazz chops, learn many more interesting ways to voice-lead II V I’s.
The above examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
You can voice lead the chords in such a way that the top note moves up chromatically, scalar, and so on.


Hit me up anytime at if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

The free lessons I offer on my blog are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
