Rich Willey takes you on a guided tour through 144 II-V-I phrases in twelve keys. This basic chord progression is examined in meticulous detail via melodic phrases of increasing complexity that take the student from simple “inside” (chordal) harmony to advanced altered harmony. These are not only educational, they’re great fun to play!
