Dominant 7 to Minor Improvisation is an app/DVD designed to help the improvisor learn and master techniques which will help create a bridge between the two chords. I have used all of these techniques in my playing and feel confident it will assist in creating interesting options for every player. I would advise all to use an app or device (I prefer ilift) which will slow down the tempo and change keys of the mp3/track provided.
