Improve Your Jazz Chops: II V I Progressions on Guitar

The most common chord progression in jazz is II V I.
Because it is such a common chord progression you find happening over and over again in most jazz standards, it is important to that you have a collection of II V I chord progressions memorized.

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.
These 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 [email protected] if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress and results that my students experience in lessons, learning 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.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

Keep me informed on your progress. You can hit me up in the comments section below.
If you like this blog: give it a rating and feel free to give me any feedback.
I believe everything can always improve. I’d gladly implement your suggestions and ideas.

Be on the look out for more blogs about guitar, music, songwriting and music education.
You’re on your way to becoming a great guitar player.
Have fun! 🙂
