- How to play simple progressions used in turnarounds, intros, and endings such as The I, IV, and V chords, including how to keep the tonality from the root, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and more, where these beats typically begin, as well as how to play other scale notes in a riff or sequence leading up to (and past) the typical establishment of the beat
