Jazz Tunes for “The Guitar Lesson Companion Volume Two”

unnamed-31After I uploaded all 200+ jam tracks from my book The Guitar Lesson Companion, Volume Two into the iReal Pro app, I received a lot of positive feedback from teachers and students who use the method book series. So, I decided to take it a step further.

Here’s the iReal Pro playlist of some standard jazz chord progressions which matches the pace and presentation of the keys and chord tones students master in, The Guitar Lesson Companion, Volume Two. It’s super progressive (like all the LeadCatPress publications) and it will help students apply all of the things they learn in The Guitar Lesson Companion Method Book Series to “real” tunes. Most of the sheet music for these jazz standard chord progressions can be found in The New Real Book, Volume One.
