However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    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?

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