II-V-I Patterns

I have updated the II-V-I patterns yet again. I consolidated some of the other patterns I had (like the Ray Brown ones). There are now 286 pages (or 286 4 bar patterns in all keys) to enjoy. Also gone is the Jazz Font in favor of a more clean, professional look using Bill Duncan’s Fonts for Finale.

These patterns were designed to be used with Aebersold Vol. 3, Track 2. Also included is a 24 page reference of the patterns.

  1. Thanks so much!!! but why you missed to use some swingfont, ashmusic fonts? I’d like to have the .mus & compile the whole pdf using my NorMusic Font. May I have the FINALE .mus Please? If you like, you can email it to me: nbahha@yahoo.fr


  2. im really excited to get working on these but well i open the pdf file i just get white sheets, i dont think i have the correct fonts. i dont have finale either. is there anyway i can view these excersizes without having to buy anything/?

  3. You know that I am the designer of the NorMusic Fonts? & without any respect you said they are like a crap? Why I was kind with you? I would offer you a copy of my NorMusic Fonts…It’s a shame to have Mr Ericdano juge my hardwork of 2 years the way he likes. Ericdano, next time, when you have nothing good to say, just do not say anything.


  4. Oh, ok. So, if it looks bad, I’m supposed to say nothing. Yeah. That makes sense.

    At least you have a website that works now. When I orignally posted the comment, back in April, the site didn’t work.

    Looking at the example, it’s hard to read. Things are running into other things on the page.

    So, on further reflection, I still think it looks like crap. Sorry you spent two years on it, but that is what I think of it.

  5. By the way, you can purchase my fonts from here: http://www.lulu.com/normusic

    Thanks for being so Kind!

  6. I am ready to really do an intensive study of II-V-I patterns. I am fairly fluent in basic chords, but often find I need a better route through the changes. The choices posted by Eric are great, but is there a logical progression? Has anyone developed a systematic approach to the patterns that involves an order or do you just start at the beginning? I am thinking I’ll just play through them until I find ones I like and then learn that pattern in 12 keys.
