Watch the ii-V-I-vi Progression online guitar lesson by John Stowell from Modern Jazz Progressions

The substitutions that I'm using here to create small variations and embellishments over the II, V and I chords are self-explanatory.

Notice that I'm using chords which match the harmonic content of my lines exactly. The element of spontaneity, which is so important on the bandstand, is not in evidence here.

The goal is to develop your ear to recognize a lot of small components of the harmony. With repetition, all of these sounds become a part of your vocabulary and can be played/accessed in the moment.
