Blues/Jazzy Chord Progressions

We ran across the 6/8 issue with the bpi limitation as well…. 6 * 12 > the max of bpi 64.

However…

A bpi of 36 works perfectly. Whats also interesting is that syncing with a DAW, having jammr & the DAW at the same bpm worked fine. I thought i would need to cut a bpm by 1/2 to keep everything in sync, but that is not the case.

Functionally, 6/8 ends up being the same as 3/4.


Wayne Shorter's Footprints works well, also! Another 6/8 blues progression.
