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)

6D = 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.
