    Strictly Outside

    For a strictly outside I've recorded a jazz blues backing (in G-major). The changes is in general:

    | G7 | C7 | G7 | G7 | C7 | C#dim7 | G7 Am7 | Bm7 Bbm7 |
    | Am7 | D9 | G7 E7 | A7 D7 |

    However, I use a few extensions and substitutions. You should really not worry to much about extensions and substitutions in improvising, except from being aware of that I use +9 extension for the E7 and the D7 in the turnaround. An example of what you will hear on the comping is:

    | G13 // G7+5 | C7 // F#7 | G13 | G#13 / G13 G7+5 | C9 | C#dim7 |
    | G7 Am7 | Bm7 Bbm7 | Am7 | D9-5 | G7 E7+9 | A13 D7+9 |

    Although, bear in mind that the comping (and extensions and substitutions) is impovised on the spot.

    Playing outside was discussed in: http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/...ead.php?t=8258. This thread should cover the theoretical areas and "how to" part.

    This take is recorded with my friends "Dirty Harry" on bass and "Rockin' Rolf" on piano. I'm comping on the guitar. The improvisation on the demonstration is played on a piano. Playing outside is a challange, and I did not find my own examples sufficient for demonstration. I'll post later.

    I also hope that this encurages more keybord players to participate in stricktly threads.

    Analyzing the improv a little would indicate that "Rolf" is using most of the outside techniques as described in the thread mentioned above.

    A similar great jazzy blues, including some outside playing, is recorded by SeattleRuss. You'll find this in http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/...3&postcount=10 .

    SeattleRuss' analysis of his playing is found here http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/...9&postcount=14

    I guess this is a rather hard strictly, but I still hope that you all have a go at it.
