I always preach: learn jazz standards by ear, not sheet music. The benefits are numerous. Many find it easy to learn a melody by ear, but chord progressions are a totally different story.
In this video, we take a look at a “mystery chord progression” and together go through my process for figuring out the chord changes, without my instrument and without sheet music. This is a longer video, but I’m holding nothing back!
