dominant 7th arpeggio

II-V jazz guitar lick | Free guitar lesson | Minor ninth & dominant 7th arpeggios

Here is a free lesson about a II | V jazz guitar line using a D minor seventh arpeggio and a G dominant 7th arpeggio.

  • Bar 1 : Starting on the root (D) of the D dorian mode. After that you have to play : the b3 (F), the fifth (A), root again (D), b3 again (F), 9 (E), D again, b7 (C), once again the fifth (A) and a passing tone (A#). We can see that these notes are actually a D minor ninth arpeggio.  
  • Bar 2 : This measure contains notes from the G dominant 7th arpeggio (G-B-D-F) with a passing tone (b3) (A#) before playing the major third (B). Ending on the root (G).
