Hey Muris.

Cool topic you've started here.

As I said in the other topic, if you want to play "outside" you need to really do it with confidence and make it sound like it was your intention.

Nice backing, by the way, I'll see what I can do to it some time soon.

Playing outside MUST be your intention,
otherwise you have small chances
to go back inside smoothly. smile.gif

Oh btw,this backing track might be too long for playing,
do it shorter if you wish,no need for full track at all!

Yeah, sure, getting a nice 5 minutes take would take up too much of my precious time! wink.gif

And yeah, it must be your intention - that was pretty much what I meant.

You can use all of them generally
but it depends of backing track as well.
For the backing I provided you can go for A Dorian,
A Aeolian flat 5 over F7 chord
and maybe A Melodic Minor over E7 chord. smile.gif

Okay, so I use A dorian and some notes "out of the scale" here and there and it should sound pretty decent aye? I'm a total noob when it comes to fusion but I'll try to provide you with a video or two of me playing along with that BT cuz it would be nice with some feedback smile.gif

Yes,that should work fine.
But just be careful with "out" notes,
let your ear guides you for a start.
Looking forward to your takes tho! smile.gif

Hey,

What do you think about learning arpeggios ? I know they are very important in Jazz and in general it's also good to know arpeggios, but it is as important as in Jazz ?

Oh .. i missed this topic. Good one !!

Thanks Muris, great backing track .. one day i will upload a take on this .. one day smile.gif

I recently bought the Larry Carlton style track from bluesjamtracks. It is really known already through Guthrie Govan, but i think it is a good backing to jam over. There are so many different takes on youtube available .. a good source to steal some licks and get some ideas.

Absolutely wrk,learning new licks from other player is the best way
to expand your own lick library.
And it's not even stealing cause you'll never play it the same
and in same contents,you'll add piece of yourself to it
with some of your ideas. smile.gif

yes .. stealing in this case is more like to get inspired .. smile.gif

I think most experiences i have are more rock influenced, means when improvising over backing tracks i somehow see on the fretboard possible notes to play mostly based on pentatonics with some passing notes. I feel kind of free to move and substitute these shapes in different keys or cord progression.

I don't have this instant view by now with complete scales. To play the scales up and down is not the problem, but to take parts out of the scale and connect them with each other is still causing a lot of mistakes smile.gif .. For that it is really helpful to have some good, but not too complex fusion style backing tracks with different examples to get ideas of the sound.

What is helpful as well is to find some sort of theme melodies to start from while improvising and to regular come back ... it gives a bit more structure and a kind of "secure area" smile.gif

I hope here will come together a good collection of fusion backings, that will be great!! If possible with transcribed chords ..
