Interesting, thanks. I'm not great with chord-scale theory, but what's the relationship between the A+ and the F#mM7? I think I'd been hearing it as a rootless mM7, but if I'm thinking clearly without a fretboard in front of me, F# isn't in the A whole tone collection.

Sorry, by the way, to the OP for turning this into a theory geek-out. Another thing about jazz is that tends to happen...

The diatonic 7th chord a third above F#mM7 is Amaj7#5...In both harmonic minor and melodic minor (ascending ...or jazz minor).

Anyway, take away the F#and the notes left from your F#mM7, A-C#-E#, spell an A+. So, the first chord contains the second.

What is a typical right-hand technique for playing these chords?
