Gaynor's voice leading and chordal exercises

Dan Gaynor sent me these exercises that he wrote for a student of his.

"My student hasn't had a lot of experience with chord extensions or with voice-leading, so I have one exercise for each -- on saxophone. The melodic minor stuff is to really shed the V13(#11) as a Lydian-dominant, and to see how the dominant 7, minor 7 (b5), minor (maj 7) and Major 7 (#5) all fit over the same dominant chord."
