The Chord Wheel will especially be valuable when composing your own progressions. By gaining better control of the 'tension and release' inherent in progressions and within the art of Key modulation, the Chord Wheel will provide you with the tools absolutely necessary for inventive composition.
If you're looking to improve your soloing skills, the best place to start is to get the best grasp of the underlying chord progression possible. If you can't indentify the structure and associated modulations, you can't effectively solo or improvise. And it's not just jazz.
Let's face it, transposing is simply a necessary skill for all musicians. For arrangers, accompanists and composers its an absolute must. Well, now it's no longer a pain.
While there are noted musicians who just 'wing it,' the vast majority are well studied. Many have music degrees from universities and quite a few have achieved greatness through private study. Whichever road you choose, the Chord Wheel will help get you there.
