Whats up UG, this may be obvious but I never realized it until today. I was practicing soloing over chord changes, and what I ended up doing was taking a i-v (Em7 - Bm7), finding the arpeggios from both chords starting from the r b3 5 and b7, and laying them on top of each other in their respective positions. I did this to see which notes were in both chords and where the right notes were for the new chord in a close location.

Anyways, after I was finished I finally realized what combining these arpeggios created. Look familiar?? Makes sense thinking about it now, but I just never thought about it like that.

looks like the ol pentatonic with some extr notes

proabbaly why the I IV V progression works so well over the scale


Thats what I was thinking too. It's just the minor pentatonic with the 2 added

Also known as the E minor scale without the sixth note. You get the whole scale from a im7 - VII7 progression:

E G B D + D F# A C =

E F# G A B C D

(Ta-daaaa!)

Of course it's going to look like a scale, because that's where the notes of those two chords come from. If you added a few other arpeggios on top of that, you'd end up with the whole scale. If you thought that was interesting, look at the relationship between the Imaj7, iiim7 and vim7 chords in a scale, as well as the relationship between the IVmaj7,iiim7, V7, and viim7b5 chords in a key. They all overlap with each other a bit and allow for good chord and arpeggio substitutions.

I believe you mean imin7, not imaj7, with the maj 7 youd get E B G D# and D F# A C

In other words it's just the E minor scale

None taken; I even edited my post so there will be no more confusion.
