So… I decided to do a quick video between teaching lessons this evening. This is a way I've been approaching ii-V-I's to get some cool extensions and alterations. In the key of C major, think Fmaj7 arpeggio over the Dmin7 chord (giving you b3, 5, b7, 9), Fmin7b5 over the G7 (b7, b9, 3, #5), and Emin7 over the Cmaj7 (3, 5, 7, 9). This creates nice voice leading and is fun to play around with such similar and closely related shapes.
