Exam ple 8 Man­ics/imaj Iim7b5

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Theory -

While the Half-di­min­ished is gen­er­ally as­so­ci­ated with the mi­nor II V I pro­gres­sion, it’s also pos­si­ble to use this chord as a II lead­ing to a Ma­jor I chord, in this case from Bm7b5 to A. This is con­sid­ered to be a ‘de­cep­tive ca­dence’, as the res­o­lu­tion is not what you might ex­pect, although both of th­ese chords can be found lurk­ing on the 2nd and 1st de­grees of the Har­monic Ma­jor scale (R 2 3 4 5 b6 7).
