Simple question

Recommended Posts

I guess I could recommend the lesson I put together as an introduction to playing outside the chords.

To be honest with you, whilst I have spent a considerable amount of time in the past studying harmony, scales and modes, most of my non-diatonic playing consists of me using the chromatic scale between arpeggio tones. I will play some very 'wrong' notes against almost anything and bring them back in by landing on a chord tone.

Something else that makes a big difference is the conviction with which one plays a line. An outside idea, played with attitude, can be carried off far better than a consonant line that is unsure of itself.

Play it like you mean it. Well I think that is a good thing to do with everything we play anyhow.
