One of my favorite things to do when improvising is superimposition. I’ll show you here in this video how to take a F Major 7 arpeggio and play it over a G7 chord. The notes of the F Major 7 arpeggio work very well over the G7 and I’ll show you a couple of approaches for creating cool colors with this superimposition technique. Have fun!
