Play the example below from Wayne Shorter's "The Big Push" from his album, The Soothsayer. Wayne arpeggiates Fm7, EbMaj7, an F minor triad, Cm7, Bb7, and AbMaj7 - all chords belonging to Eb major - as he plays over Fm7-Bb7. Note Wayne's use of space, namely quarter and half note rests, sometimes occurring in the middle of an arpeggiated chord.
