Get started

Minor ii-V-i chord progressions come up in jazz all of the time. It’s safe to say they are the most common chord progressions in jazz repertoire alongside the major ii-V-I.

It can be helpful to have some musical ideas to play over these progressions, to give you a platform to start creating your own ideas.
