One of the joys of teaching jazz is learning new tricks and tools from other teachers. In this case, I’m sharing some information that I’ve tweaked from another source.

Just a Minor Mix-up is a combo chart that focuses on – surprise – the minor scale. Five of them to be exact (Cmi, Bbmi, Abmi, Gmi, Fmi).

It’s an easy chart and should get your students playing changes right away.
