You guys know any good structures to move up and down through a 7 note scale (maj, mel min, har min, har maj)? Other than 4ths and inversions of 4ths
I'm thinking 4 note structures, no repeating tones, and avoiding voicing the precise notes of a 7th chord (sounds better when moving around inside a chord)
So far I've got two I like. The first is very common, from bottom to top the intervals are a 5th, a 3rd, and a 3rd (all diatonic).
Example in C maj, moving down: x-x-10-12-12-10 x-x-9-10-10-8 x-x-7-9-8-7 x-x-5-7-6-5 (etc...)
The other one from top to bottom is a 3rd, a 2nd, and a 4th:
x-x-14-12-10-10 x-x-12-10-8-8 x-x-10-9-6-7 x-x-9-7-5-5 (etc...)
