With this line I tried to transpose and invert a simple shape through each chord of the I-VI-ii-V progression. Take a moment to analyze the notes in order to understand how each shape works with it's corresponding scale. Once you are familiar with the shape in all 12 keys you should begin using it as a guide to improvise slowly over some of your favorite tunes. Over time, you will become more comfortable creating your own shapes and choosing your own scales while improvising.
I hope you enjoy transposing this melody through all twelve keys. Feel free to substitute any of the written left hand voicings for your own.
