Ahhhh...page 2 finally. Before we begin I have to ask 'Have you got rhythm?'.

Well to continue what I started on the previous page; Here is an example loosly based on the Gershwin standard 'I got rhythm' the tune that holds the progressions that construct that old jazz favorite "Rhythm Changes".

C maj 7
A min 7
D min 7
G 7
The sequence sticks to the Change running rules, except on the 4th up-beat in bars 5 and 7 these two note are allowed (trust me)they are classed as 'Chromatic connections' or according to Steve R****ski they are 'Indirect approaches' to the first notes in the next bar.

Phew! ;09
