Diatonic Tertian MegaScales over ii-V7-I Changes
Normal scales are made by stacking 2nds.
MegaScales (my term) are made by stacking 3rds.
You play "Mega" Scales virtually the same way
as you would play any scale.
Here are the interlocking/overlapping relationships
between the common tones in the
successive ii-V7-I chords using the megascale concept
(4C = middle C)
= Am's 11th
5B = Am's 9th
5G = Ams b7th
5E = Ams 5th ___ D7s 9th
5C = Ams b3rd __ D7s 7th
4A = Ams root __ D7s 5th ____ Gs 9th
4F# = Ams 6th __ D7s 3rd ____ Gs maj7th
4D = ____________ D7s root ___ Gs 5th
3B = ____________ D7s 6th ____ Gs 3rd
3G = __________________________ Gs root
3E = __________________________ Gs 6th
There are some very cool and useful Jazz improvisational possibilities in here.
