Watch the Middle Voice Movement online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: ii V I Options

Now we will build upon what you've learned in the previous lessons. We will look at the options available for our middle voice. These options are shown in diagrams 12 through 14. Examples 17 through 22 show applications of this modified voice for the ii V I progression. This allows you to have a moving line in between two static voices.

It's absolutely critical that you take the examples in this course and develop your own voice leadings using information presented. This will build your inventory of harmonic moves for the ii V I progression. I also encourage you to transpose these to various keys. You might even prepare some jam tracks in which you are playing the ii V I progression in some different keys. I will really get these things under your fingers and you be prepared to play any tune.
