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

In this application I'm also using the minor pentatonic scale ascending in half steps over a jazz ii-V-I progression but this time I'm beginning on the root of the ii chord up a 5th, which again creates tension with altered sounds on the V chord and adds the #11th to the I chord for a less resolved sound, as we heard earlier in the course when playing minor pentatonic a half step below major chords.
