Rhythm Changes is the name given to a chord progression originating from the Gershwin song 'I've Got Rhythm'. It's generally used as a practice vehicle for aspiring jazz players.

Traditionally it's played in Bb and quite fast. The chords move rapidly and you need to know your stuff to keep up with it. However, we can simplify it.

This is the usual version.
