II-V-I in C

You can see the Cmaj7 being played in the second bar. If you do not know where it is, refer to my Arpeggios lesson.

If you're wondering why Cmaj7 is being played over G7 it's because it's leading into the next chord. You don't always have to compliment the chords, but it's important you know how to. Then after that you can think about leading melodies.
