Lesson 21: iii | vi | ii | V variants

Plenty of stuff shown to me again last Sunday, what I managed to retain was this.

From there we can start doing some embellishment over those dom7 chords by adding in the b5, #5 and b9 and #9.  I’ll make a vid of some of these over the weekend.  Behind on my blogging as you can see; a full treatment of what I learned would take me about two hours to write up…
