1. Play the following dominant chords around the cycle of 4ths. Hint: your pinky never leaves the 3rd string.
||: G7 | C7 | F7 | Bb7 | Eb7 | Ab7 | Db7 | Gb7 | B7 | E7 | A7 | D7 :||
2. Next we add the ii chord before the dominant chord. Think of the ii chord as the V chord with a raised 3rd. For example: In the first bar, rather than thinking of Dm7, think of a G7 with a raised 3rd.
||: Dm7 G7 | Gm7 C7 | Cm7 F7 | Fm7 Bb7 | Bbm7 Eb7 | Ebm7 Ab7 |
| Abm7 Db7 | Dbm7 Gb7 | Gbm7 B7 | Bm7 E7 | Em7 A7 | Am7 D7 :||
3. It is up to you to use this same approach with all your inversions in all areas of the fingerboard.
