Tim Miller Substitution Idea - Example 3

Here’s a little twist I added myself. My initial idea was to add more notes to the F# triad without compromising too much of its distinct sound (like a scale would do), so I expanded the triad with the notes D#/Eb and G#/Ab giving us a F#maj or Ebmin pentatonic. So for creating your own licks remember the following formula:

From a min7 go up a minor 3rd and play a minor pentatonic.

Here are the intervals that the additional notes imply:

D#/Eb against Cm7: b3
G#/Ab against Cm7: b6
