Watch the A Fifth Above: Jazz ii-V-I online guitar lesson by Rob Garland from The Guitarist's Pentathlon

For this demonstration I'm playing Gm pentatonic over Cm7, G#m pentatonic over the F7 chord and Am pentatonic on the Bb MAJ7 chord. By moving the same melodic line or rhythmic idea through three pentatonic scales as the ii-V-I chords change, you can create tension on the V chord with altered sounds and resolve them on the I chord, still without learning any new scales! Try to move through the different pentatonic shapes once you get used to the idea and listen to the sound of the #11, the note E against the I chord BbMAJ7.
