    For...
    D half-diminished 9 major = Locrian 9 (melodic minor)
    G Alt = melodic minor altered scale
    Cm7 = Dorian or eolian escale

    Dm7 = dorian scale
    G13 = mixolidian or lidian b7 scale
    Cmaj7 = jonian scale

    Dm7 (b5) = locrian scale
    G7 b9 b13 = mixolidian b9 b13 scale (harmonic minor scale)
    Cm6 = Dorian 7M (melodic minor scale)

    Eb diminished = SubV from G7, so just to practice the diminished scale in four bars.

    Appling the arpegio for each chord will be very very useful.

    Set the transposition (?) for 4th and enjoy it!!!
    Hi Marcus
    I appreciate your explanation . I normally don't download anything called II V I workout since I have oodles of them.
    I thought I'd check yours out.
    ....a couple problems
    It doesn't play properly I'm surprised you put it up without using it first.
    1)you need to put a bar line in the last bar of each staff.
    2) you don't need 4/4 on each line . it looks weird
    3) Just use repeats on the same chord progression.You can make them repeat as many times as you like . use the text and write 3x in the first box.
    Don't post a playlist as the songs in a Realbook if the changes aren't from the book.
    If you do transcribe changes from a book put it in the title RB1, RB2, GGB, Sher, etc

    I took Marcus's Intensive ii V7 I workout and made it something else
    Intensive ears training #1 - hear the inner notes change

    Are there also triad (no 7th chords) excercises available? In all 12 keys around the circle of fifths... in perfect fifths
    7th are a bit too advanced for the moment.

    Hello Marcus.
    in your charts in "Starling Academy" playlist there are a number of errors:
    http://www.irealb.com/forums/showthr...6642#post36642
    - minor cycles should use C#m instead of Dbm, or Bbm instead of A#m (not really an error, just easier playing)
    - track 6 (ciclo para acordes) you use Bo, but it really should be Bø (VII degree on major scale is half-diminished, not diminished - the 7th of the chord is minor)
    - it is good musical chart practice to put repeats at the end instead of the beginning (for example, ||: C | Dm 9x :||, NOT ||:9x C | Dm :||)
    - there's a chord mistake in "Guitarra 1 - ciclo de 4as": the fourth chord should be D#o, not Abo ( (I choose D#o instead of Ebo because the diminished chord is usually the chord built on a raised VII degree of a harmonic minor scale, or the VII degree of a major scale with a diminished 7th; Eb is not a raised VII of any scale, D# is the raised VII of Em. Also, it's easier for me to think of the chord tones as D#-F#-A-C rather than Eb-Gb-Bbb-Dbb... (chords are stacked thirds)).

    Thanks for the contribution.

    Also, I'm posting a chart similar to one of yours, but built from someone else's idea, but since I rename mine to generic exercises, I couldn't find the original post again. The charts are for Dominant chords, but one could create from this a chart for any type of chord.
    [If the original poster recognizes his/her chart let me know, I'll edit the post and give credit.]
