Ex­am­ple1 II Vs in de­scend­ing semi­tones

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

We kick this les­son off with a se­lec­tion of four IIm7-V7 lines de­scend­ing from Gm7-C7 to Em7-A7 in semi­tones. The beauty of learn­ing this ex­am­ple is that each two-bar phrase works per­fectly in­de­pen­dently of its neigh­bours, so once you’ve got th­ese un­der your fingers, feel free to move them about to any key or leave them all in the same tonal­ity for great melodic us­abil­ity against a static mi­nor (II) or dom­i­nant (V) vamp.
