    Sound Clip Here = Strange Sound

    This is a run through with a jazz backer. My Tele has Seymour Duncan Vintage Stacks bit I have a mini-switch that cut out the noiseless coils. They're off in this track. I'm using my '78 Mesa/Boogie amp. The guitar was inexpensive but I love it.

    Sounds great too. What scales are you using, over the I chord for example?

    Below I posted the original players comments and a link to his version (his is better than mine). I rooted my playing in C Dorian mode but used arpeggios for some of the chords and even F Dorian mode sometimes on the Fm7. I took a look at the melodic minor modes mentioned below (ascending and decending are different - 6th & 7th each dropped 1/2 step when decending) that led to a couple of interesting runs. See the original posters comments ... I found them good reading and practice.

    Interestingly enough, the guy that posted the original backer ... here's his rendition ... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=275337&songID=5757567 ... he's 20 years old ... I think he's gonna be a monster player. His comments on the post are in italics below and gave me some interesting study ... he wrote:

    I play the Bb major scale for the C-minor7 (dorian) and the Eb major scale for the Fm7 (dorian) or the Ab major scale (aeolian) (but you can use for example a Am7b5 arpeggio (a,c,eb,g) over the C-minor7 or an dm7b5 arpeggio (d,f,ab,c) for the f-minor7 chord and combine the notes with some hip rhythm)

    Over the Ab7#11 you can play Eb melodic minor or leave the #11 and play Db-major scale for a mixolydian sound and over the G7alt the Ab melodic minor scale (super locrian I think it's called) and/or a Fm7b5 arpeggio (f,ab,c,eb) and with the arpeggio you get automatically a super locrian sound..

    C-harmonic minor scale I used for example at the end of the track.

    Arpeggios are really cool, you don't have to play them 1:1, I use them more as a guide line and use chromatic stuff alot.
