This week we are going to do an episode prompted by one of our listeners, Fred. He wanted us to do an episode on the minor ii-V-i and we are happy to! This is an interesting progression with some differences from it’s major cousin. There are some select things we need to know to play over this progression well and we are going to cover the half diminished chord this week and then put it all together in our next episode.
If you have never heard of a half diminished chord (also known as minor seven flat five) you’re in the right place! There are also some common mistakes that get made when playing over this chord and we will address these in this week’s episode. You’ll learn how to play both the arpeggios and scales that go along with this chord in our Harmolodic exercise. Enjoy the episode and thanks for listening!
