Lesson notes

In this lesson we’re going to learn another common jazz chord progression, the iii­vi-­ii-­V. The iii-­vi-­ii-­V works especially well as an occasional variation on the I­-vi-­ii-­V sequence for extended intros, or repeated on its own for extended outros; it also fits well within the form itself. A couple of tunes that feature the iii­-vi-­ii-­V progression are “Will You Still be Mine,” by Matt Dennis & Tom Adair, and “Have You Met Miss Jones,” by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart.
