Page o' coordination: That with interruptions - 03

 I like this little series. Nothing radically innovative, but a slightly different way of thinking about normal jazz comping vocabulary, courtesy of John Riley. These pages aren't ordered for total beginners— if I were teaching this to a student new to jazz, I would reverse the order.

This is intended as a jazz thing, so swing the 8th notes. Playing it as straight 8ths in cut time will also be useful for some other styles. Approach this in page-at-once mode— cover all the patterns in fairly rapid succession, in one session.
