Hey Jae,

A quick thing about this whole Eb7 over G7 bit.  Basically, it results in
the altered scale, which is sort of a Jazz Improvisation 101 scale (there is
one different note, but it's essentially the altered scale). The two chords
may be very different, but they result in something that sounds just like
"Jazz."  Arpeggiate it, play it as a scale, select a melody from the notes
in the scale, and no matter what - ascending, descending, in 3rds, 4ths,
anything - everyone on this list will recognize the sound.  

Thanks,

Rick McLaughlin
