Use your own rhythm. The number of beats per chord is up to you.
Once you have learned this pattern in this position, shift and play it in many different positions.
For an intro start the pattern anywhere, using these fingerings for the first two measures. For the last two measures, start the 1st fingering in the key you want to lead into. Example: This pattern is in the key of G. Suppose your music selection is in the key of Bb. Play the pattern in G. Then play the same identical pattern starting on Bb for the last 2 measures.
The Dominant 7th #9 could be played using the root instead of the 5th for the bass. However, the bass line used moves chromatically in the first three chords. The last Dominant 7th (D7) in the example, may be altered, by placing the root in the bass, make any of the following: flat 9, flat 5, 13, aug 11, sus4. Or make the Dominant a bII. In place of D7 use Ab7 or in place of F7 use B7. It's your choice. PART II next page.
