Essential Blues Eartraining system/tests/playalong
Now, for the first time a DEFINITIVE Blues Ear training system comprising all the chord options serious students of Jazz need to know in 12 keys!
This innovative system + tests has been meticulously designed to train you to hear + understand the 10 + most important tried and tested Jazz/ Blues progressions of the Great American Jazz continuum.
Immersing your ears in these vital chord sequences, you will deepen your understanding of Jazz harmony, taking your musicianship/improvisation to a much higher level.
Note. If you wish to purchase this with a credit card please proceed to the JazzDuets parallel site here: https://gum.co/vQZSr
This digital download includes the following:
- 48 mp3 Audio files ( 4 tests per each of the 12 keys)
- 12 grid sheets that simultaneously display all the chord possibilities in every key + Roman numeral analysis (so you can understand the logic of the progressions)
- An Answer sheet of the 48 mp3 tests, that you initially use, and over time dispense with as you ear improves!
How to use the system:
1) Upload the files in to your favourite Mp3 player
2) listen through deeply, day in day and out making notes on how the different chords feel.
3) Play the Mp3’s randomly, looking at the accompanying chord sheet trying to see if you can hear the different chord colours.
4) Play the Mp3’s randomly, without the accompanying chord sheet
5) Use the Mp's as a playalong! So try singing and playing along with your instrument, with and without the grid sheets, reacting and 'nailing' the different chord changes.

Essential blues ear training
Very clever way of learning the composition of scales and functions, on top of an excellent ear training tool of course. A similar system including Minor Melodic chords would be even greater! I use it the way you show it, with paper and pen. I can hear every options and could write every grid with functions only, but am not fast enough yet to write them down in certain "unsusal" keys. By the way, for a A7 in the key of C, do you use the Berkeley V7/II system which includes the possible resolution or the more classic Juilliard (?) VI7? I find the latter easier, but wonder if the first isn't more profitable in the long run?
As an internediate player this course is very challenging for me, but fun!
Really worth it's money!
