So what should you do? How should you practice?


First, learn some "heads"- that is melodies for this chord progression. Try to learn heads in different keys, and if the heads aren't too bad, transpose them! transpose the progression, and play in every key- by ear optimally, or write them out if you need to. Practice improvising over this progression (again, in every key)
