II-V-I sequence | Bm7b5 arpeggio & ionian mode
How to play a Bm7b5 guitar arpeggio over a II-V-I jazz sequence ? The m7b5 arpeggio (also called half diminished) gets interesting when it is played over a minor seventh chord starting on the sixth of this chord, for example :
The Dm7 chord is made of the four following notes :
- Root (D)
- Minor third (F)
- Fifth (A)
- Minor seventh (C)
The Bm7b5 arpeggio is made up of four notes too :
- Root (B)
- minor third (D)
- diminished fifth (F)
- minor seventh (A)
By playing a Bm7b5 arpeggio over a Dm7 chord we get this :
- The root of Bm7b5 (B) is the thirteenth of Dm7.
- The b3 of Bm7b5 (D) is the root of Dm7.
- The b5 of Bm7b5 (F) is the b3 of Dm7.
- The b7 Bm7b5 (A) is the fifth of Dm7.
That brings an interesting thirteenth over Dm7.
Bar 1 : We can see a Bm7b5 arpeggio over the Dm7 chord.
Bar 2 : b7 and root of G7.
Bar 3 : C ionian mode.
