altered V to i resolution
Example 6: In jazz a common practice is to imply a move from dominant V7 to tonic. This implied ‘perfect’ cadence could be made stronger still by raising or lowing the extensions on the V7 chord to create a sharp or flat 5, sharp or flat 9, or any combination thereof. To go along with these ‘altered’ chords we have the Altered scale, or Superlocrian. G Altered is G-Ab-Bb-B-Db-Eb-F, which when combined with our C Major scale gives us 11 of the 12 chromatic notes. Or we could swap to C Lydian (C-D-E-F#-G A-B) from C Major to get the complete set.
