Hi Guys,

Just a short ii V7 I alternate picking guitar lick. [This starts on a down stroke]

The chords are altered:

So, for chord ii Bm we replace it with B augmented with a sharpened 9th. This in turn gives us the Major 3rd and the minor 3rd and so we can apply a simple B minor scale.

Also, notice that I have placed accents on the 3rd note of each 4 note grouping. Accenting like this will help to keep the rhythm in tight tetrachords [4 note] groupings.

In the next bar the “Dominant” chord has the 5th raised to create an Augmented 7th sound:

For this chord we can employ the F melodic minor scale:

Finally we slide the C natural up a semitone to C# to resolve the cadence to the 3rd note of A Major 7 the tonic chord.
