Chordal moves (II-V-I)

    Yo, I remember Kurt writing out a wicked move on the old message board using this voicing: 1-3-x-1-3-3 and moving it up in major thirds (I think) to reharmonize a II-V-I minor cadence. I cant figure out now how he did it....doh! Anyone have a clue? Kurt perhaps :)

    This thread is for II-V-I moves only (minor/major keys). What are your favorite moves? This is one of mine:

    Gm:

    5-6-x-7-8-8 > 4-x-4-5-6-6 > 3-5-x-3-6-5 (For the Amb5 I use the thumb onthe root, and on the tritonesub Ab13 as well, and I bar with the first finger on the Gm9 chord.)

    Keep ┬┤em coming :)

    Best, Sandemose

    I'll just continue in G (but major this time). This one is pretty well known and I like it a lot: x-x-5-5-5-7 > x-x-4-5-4-7 > x-9-x-7-8-7

    and this one: x-7-9-5-8-x > x-6-7-4-7-x > x-5-7-4-7-x

    Do you guys just mean the melodic minor voicing trick?

    my favorite voicing over a GMel Min feel
    e 0
    b 7
    g 7
    D 5
    A 7
    E 6

    That sucker is kind of large, but it just feels good.

    Shoot I went of topic ....move that up in minor thirds...you could also do the same with the voicing above

    e 3
    b 3
    g 4
    D 7
    A 6

    Here's the one I like (this is in D minor):

    x-7-7-3-3-x > x-10-10-6-6-x > x-8-9-5-5-x

    Cool thread!

    ii-V in G:

    (x-x-10-9-8-7) (x-x-10-8-7-7) Resolve where you want, maybe (x-x-5-7-7-7) or (x-x-4-4-3-5)

    Another in G, almost the same but the D7 has a b13 instead of a natural 13:

    (x-15-14-12-12-x) (x-15-13-11-11-x) (x-10-9-11-10-x)

    Hope those are right, I don't have the guitar in front of me at the moment...

    Sandemose, re: this, "Yo, I remember Kurt writing out a wicked move on the old message board using this voicing: 1-3-x-1-3-3 and moving it up in major thirds (I think) to reharmonize a II-V-I minor cadence. I cant figure out now how he did it....doh! Anyone have a clue? Kurt perhaps" :)

    You could try this: 3-5-3-5-5-3, Dminor over G, up a minor third for G altered, 6-8-6-8-8-6, up a 2nd to bass note C, 8-10-8-10-10-8

  7. hey all, this works for that first voicing as a minor ii-v-i in d 1-3-x-1-3-3 e-7b5, up a minor third 6-8-x-6-8-8 a7 alt, up a major third 10-12-x-10-12-12 d-6/9 here's a fun one, x-7-8-7-7-5 e-7b5, x-6-7-6-6-5 a7 alt, x-5-3-4-5-5 d-6/9

  8. whoops, first chord 3-5-x-3-5-5......
