  1. This is called constant structures voicings. Borrowed from1960s jazz, but originally comes from 1860s Reconstruction era Blues!

    Here we have a series of minor chords linked by roots in a unifying scale. The persistent chord quality defies diatonicism, adding the interesting colors. The use of the M chord at the end adds a satisfying and interesting contrast without disrupting the constant structures excessively.

    Nice that you worked it out. It’s the best way.
