Jazz Progressions

One of the most common progressions is the ii-V-I progression. The ii-V-I sounds at its best when you use seventh chords and their expanded voicings. As you already know from past lessons, the ii chord is a minor chord, the V chord is a dominant chord, and the I chord is a major chord. So the most basic Jazz progression is the ii minor 7 - V dominant 7 - I major 7. In the key of C, this progression is Dm7-G7-Cmaj7. Below, you will find a few examples to experiment with in addition to a set of chord diagrams showing various ii-V-I progressions. Scales and emotions.

Major scales These scales have a major third (E in the key of C), which makes them feel happy or bright. C major scale Happy; can be majestic or sentimental when slow. C Mixolydian mode Bluesy, rock; can also be exotic/modal. C Lydian mode Ethereal, dreamy, futuristic. C Lydian dominant mode Also known as the overtone scale or acoustic scale, because it is close to the first seven pitches in the natural overtone series.
