Here the melodic idea is presented in a transposed form. The original F minor lick is transposed down a semitone to the key of E minor. Note that the same idea can now be used for E minor, C major (implying a Cadd9 chord) and in its adapted form – and not played here – A7. Using this idea you can play over any minor, dominant or major chord and is a wonderful demonstration of how a single idea can be adapted to myriad situations.
