Improv with Minor ii-V’s

Introduction

In this improvisation example, we’ll play over some minor ii-V’s that resolve down by whole-step.

The Chord Progression

Materials to Use

For each line (4 measures), use the minor scale corresponding to the last chord on the line. You can optionally use the harmonic minor for the first two measures and then natural minor for the last two. For instance, for the first two measures you can play D harmonic minor over E-7♭5 and A7, and then D minor over the D-7 chord.
