Hi Odin smile.gif

You'll have to be more specific for us to help:

1) Do you have a video or audio of your current playing so that we can see what you need to improve on?
2) What will you be doing for the examination? Again, so we can choose the right exercises.

Cheers.

Try and learn through tunes as much as possible. If you want to work on chords, arpeggios, licks and scales, do it through a tune like Autumn Leaves, Summertime or Blues Bossa. That way you get the material down and you learn how to play a tune at the same time.

Also, spend time transcribing solos by your favorite players. Then analyze the solos to see what licks you like, what scales they use over certain chords etc.

Transcribing and learning tunes are two great places to start when working on jazz.
