    Theres 2 bars in the beginning of this tune, where it is just a C Maj/Min7 chord, and I'm trying to find alternatives to playing one chord for 2 bars. I've tried the Cmin7 and Gmin7 before the II-V of Gmin7-C7, but nothing sounds real good to me.

    Any one else have an alternative on this tune?

    I like this one:

    C- C-/Bb | A-7b5 D7#9 | G-7 | Db-6 Gb7b5|

    just yer standard secondary dominant and tritone sub approaches...

    Great tune. Lots going on in a pretty short form. Back cycling is another common tool for something like this also. Good luck
