The Maj7#5 chord has its own unique tension associated with its sound. In this lesson, we explore a longer idea that comes out of this chord. With the long strains of eighth notes moving in ascent and descent, coupled with the inherent tension of the chord, this idea sounds more like a melody then an arpeggio. You can also translate this over other chords including the dominant 7th chord and the minMaj7 chord.
