Hello Mike, I woulkd like you to ask a question about improvising; How do I improvise on a non-diatonic chord progression? i.o. improvising over chords which aren't derived/ formed from the diatonic intervals of the major or minor scale. I know when you improvise over a diatonic chord progression you can use the modes from which the given chords are derived, but what are the possibilities with the non-diatonic chord progressions? And what is exactly "outside playing" ? I think it is improvising with scales/ modes which aren't directly related to the chord progression; can you give me some examples of this technique? Greetings, Tony.
