Chordscales of Minor ii-V-i Progressions
The derivation of chordscales for minor ii-V-i progressions is less straightforward than with major ii-V-Is. Each minor key has three scales whereas each major key has just one. In this lesson, watch as the chordscales for minor ii-V-i progressions are derived from their component 13th chords and then see how the resulting chordscales are used by Miles Davis in his improvised solo over the tune "It Could Happen to You" from his 1956 release, "Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet."
