- major 251s

It’s important to be able to play over these common progressions in a variety of styles including simple 4 note comping voicings, drop 2 and Barry Harris voicings, bigger 2 handed rootless voicings, and upper structure triads.

Mix and match the different styles, perhaps changing after each section to create variety and contrast in your accompaniment.
