I was reading the thread about Carol Kaye's approach to improvising http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=98885 and ordered the book. I'm working on the stacked triads concept at the moment and it seems pretty cool. However, I find that as good as her musicianship is, I have a hard time understanding her writing. So, can some of you guys chime in on the subject of stacked triads and how to use them? I'm confused about how you decide the order of major or minor triads in the stack. E.g. on page 3 of the Jazz Improv book, she gives a G7 example. The chords are G, Bm7(B5), Dm, F, Am, C, Em, G. It looks like she goes Major, Minor, Major, Minor, etc... Is this the only way to do it (of course not)? Why is the 2nd chord a m7(b5)? Anyway, I appreciate any input you guy might have. GS.
