Gmaj7 sounds great over E minor. This approach works for any chord - Cmaj7 over A minor, Amaj7 over F# minor, etc...

Cool?

I dig it! I like your "scene" as well. I remember your earlier vids were different, I believe.

It's the same chord. Gmaj7 is merely an Em9 w/o the root. Yes, that's a great formula, I use it quite a bit, there are others as well.

The other one ya gotta know is, Am or Am7 arp over Fmaj7. Fmaj7=FACE Am=ACE, Am7=ACEG (which would represent Fmaj9 (FACEG) w/o a root.

Thanks, yeah it becomes an Em9, lovely chord.

I've been toying with video backgrounds, since I had temporary access to a stock video site. Fun stuff. :)

You can also play the Gmaj7 arpeggio over A7. Outlines the Mixolydian mode (A11).

Another cool thing that I think you guys are already mentioning is something I learned from certain jazz sources - that is - putting triads over triads gets alterations.

Like D, F#, A over C E G gives you a C maj with the 9, #11 and 13 on top.

So just go up a whole step from your home chord and build a major triad.

Cool! Seems like you have a nice setup. Hope to see more!
