Chord Progression Workouts

This is the complete list of all of our Chord Progression Workouts.  These exercises help you practice important chord progressions you will find in jazz repertoire.  Each workout includes a play-along to help you practice the given chord progression in all 12 keys.  The workouts cycle through all 12 keys using the Circle of 4ths (C-F-Bb-Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-B-E-A-D-G).  Practicing in all 12 keys is a very effective way to practice and help master these progressions.

If you are having any issues improvising over individual chords be sure to check out our Jazz Chord Workouts.
