Watch the Minor II-V-I online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Jazz Anatomy
We finish off this first edition of Jazz Anatomy with the minor II V I series. Black Orpheus, Autumn Leaves, Beautiful Love, Yesterdays and hundreds of other tunes use the minor II V I as do hundreds of latin jazz sambas and boleros. Use the "4 to the bar" rhythm as a jumping off point and again, learn all of your chord voicings up and down the neck - don't be content to just play the same shapes you know. Be creative!
