Watch the ii-V-i Progression online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar

In this video segment we cover the common ii-V-i progression, this time resolving on a minor chord instead of a major chord. The chords we use are Am7-D7-Gm. The goal for the following play-along using this progression is to come up with simple melodic ideas using what you have learned throughout this course. For example:

* Common tones

* Use all the minor tonalities such as natural minor, dorian, harmonic and pentatonic minor scales

* Since we resolve on a minor chord, the flat 9 scale works well when playing over the V chord

* The super locrian

* Make use of 3-note and 4-note arpeggios and chord tones

* Tonal centers

With this information in mind, pick one or two concepts each time you play over the following play-along track and make simple melodic ideas with them. Make other jam tracks in other keys and in other tempos.
