Today, a quick ii V7 I McLaughlin-esque lick
This is at 140 Bpm with an altered approach to harmony with strict alternate picking guitar technique.
The chords are as follows.
For the ii minor chord I employ a minor chord with a Major 7th and an added 9th.
For the V7 chord I raise the 5th [#5] and add a flattened 9th note.
And for the I chord I make this augmented by raising the 5th.
So, the ii V7 I becomes harmonically altered and creates an interesting sound
The line starts on an upbeat with 3 target tones that deliberately set up the 1st note of bar one. This adds forward momentum and adds a colourful chromatic set-up.
The target tones start on an “Up stroke” so that on the first beat of bar one you will land and start a “Down stroke”
Over the DmMaj7/9 chord I start with a Dm9 arpeggio and then exploit the D Harmonic minor scale by ascending in fragments.
Over the G+b9 chord I start on the third note B and then play an Eb 4-3 arpeggio.
The Bb from this arpeggio then moves up to the B natural and then I play the b9 to tonic and #5 to5 which then finally moves down to the note C for the tonic of the next chord C+.
