I’m looking for a way to train my “finger memory”. Does anyone know a useful exercise (PG video) that helps to grab the appropriate chord progressions “on the fly”.
At the moment I’m practicing chords in all 12 keys using lead sheets in the following way:
LH: 15 RH: 37. Or I transcribe these 4 tones by ear, transpose them into the other keys. Later i´m fill in the space with extensions and alterations.
Is there another type of shortcut that helps ? A smart trick with often appropriate inversions ?
My second question is:
Does anyone know a PG Video or a good exercise for “chord tone soloing” ?
WOW Hayden, many thanks for the support. All my questions found an answer. I’m so grateful for that. I’ve adjusted my routines like this. I really enjoy being a member. I searched for this information for a very long time !!
I’m already practicing!
I also try to practice diatonic 7 chords in all 12 keys. (Major and minor). In both hands. Also as spread voicings LH 15 RH 37. I think that I can transcribe tunes faster by ear after I have found the tonal center if I initially use simple spread voicings. I don’t always have to play the extended voicings directly first.
I produce rhythm backing tracks for every exercise. (drums & bass) which I play as a loop in Logic. In my opinion, even practicing major scales isn’t so boring and you play more correctly. I saw that you can also create your own exercises in IReal Pro. Maybe I will implement it in IReal Pro.
