Practice: Study your favourite pieces and improvise using this method. Use ii-V-I progressions to start with 3 chord types and then pass through various keys to become familiar with these shapes and sounds. Create emotional connections with every sound you create. If you dare, add a vi to the progression.

1 – Ionian
2 – Dorian
