This is iReal Pro. It’s an app that thousands of jazz musicians use to look up chord changes and even practice.
So, when I came up with the video recently where I said that using iReal Pro with fake books to learn jazz standards is bad advice, you can imagine not everybody liked hearing that.
Now, while I do believe that learning jazz standards in jazz language by ear is the best place to go, it should be our primary resource, that doesn’t mean that iReal Pro and fake books don’t have their place in our jazz education.
So, in today’s video, I will be going over 5 different situations where using iReal Pro and sheet music would be a good idea.
