@Ben - example of a similar and inherently answerable question. music.stackexchange.com/q/1024/149

comment What are some common jazz chord progressions?
@Ben - "improvising" - The question has some substance, the rationale would be that the op knows ii-v-i progressions and variations thereof, and would like to progress from that and add something more to his playable repertoire. The goal obviously isn't that apparent and could be worded much better, but its there nonetheless. This question doesn't qualify as a "blatantly off-topic question", therefore it shouldn't have been closed, at least not without some flags or general community disagreement.

comment What are some common jazz chord progressions?
@Matthew - I never said it was a good question, however, I do think its an acceptable one. The op is not asking for a list of chords, he is asking for Jazz chord progressions which are not variations of ii-v-i. This is an answerable question, that some people would find useful. Also is there not supposed to be at least some community consensus before 'borderline' questions are just closed, IE: a flag or two on the question?

comment What are some common jazz chord progressions?
This question shouldn't have been closed. Voted to reopen. Perhaps could do with an edit to remove the "Is the answer.." bit, but the op is clearly asking for common jazz chord progressions which are not variations of a ii-v-i.

comment Useful tuning for 7 or 8 string guitars
Just to note - B gives you the forth, but dropping it to an A has the same effect as dropping your E to D on a 6 string (one finger power chords, easy 9ths etc).

comment Guitar Amplifier (Head versus Combo versus None)
Also worth a look are some of the free VST amps around - shred is one of the better examples of this acmebargig.com/product/shred

Or any clarinet players at all, would be good to hear any real and proper (in terms of preferred and learned instrumentalists) clarinet players weight in on this.
