Ex­am­ple1 II-V-I lines in C in­cor­po­rat­ing the whole-tone scale

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

This demon­strates the ba­sic sound of the Whole-Tone scale over a re­solv­ing al­tered dom­i­nant chord - in this case on a cou­ple of II-V- I se­quences in C. For the first line we’re mov­ing straight up a Dm7 ar­peg­gio over the Dm7 chord, then straight down the G Whole-Tone scale over the G7#5 chord and re­solv­ing to a Cmaj7 ar­peg­gio on the Cmaj7 chord. For the sec­ond line we’re do­ing the same in re­verse fur­ther up the neck, mov­ing straight down a Dm7 ar­peg­gio over the Dm7 chord, then straight up the G Whole-Tone scale over the G7#5 chord and re­solv­ing to the C Ma­jor scale on the Cmaj7 chord.
