    Post Playin' outside

    Hi,
    I was just wondering if someone has any ideas about what I can do to "play outside"? (playing outside the scale). I know there's a book about playing outside by a teacher from GIT. Has anyone read this? Any recommendations?

    Happy Easter!

    Well, one thing I would like to recommend is Scott Hendersonīs "Jazz Fusion Improvisation" video. Itīs a good place to start if you wanna learn more about that kinda style.
    Scott explains what scales and arps can be used over certain chords, etc. moving from rather diatonic playing to some outside-stuff.
    Hereīs a short summary:
    "In Jazz Fusion Improvisation, Scott reveals his unique approach to improvising over chords used in Jazz Fusion.
    In this video, he demonstrates uses for: Major, Melodic Minor, Diminished, Pentatonic and Whole-Tone scales, along with modern uses for Arpeggios and rhythmic phrasing and touches on the art of playing "outside".
    On screen music included.
    60 minutes. "

    Hope this helps
    Eric
