In this lesson we'll learn another stereotypical jazz chord progression called Rhythm Changes. This is another, important aspect of jazz rhythm guitar style.

The progression is a slice of the Circle of Fifths. This is also know as "cycle five" in jazz terms. The progression is V of vi - V of ii - V of V - V - I. This is a very typical chord progression found in many jazz tunes. Eventually, this will form the B section of a stereotypical jazz tune form.
