Re: Jazz scales

Thanks for all the input but after a fair bit of practice and trying out stuff, I have gotten nowhere, could you guys recommend any artists to listen to that might help get into the 'mood'. the only jazzish music i listen to is Michael Buble and that not very often. First of all, I'd suggest you ge...

I don't like this particular interpretation, but you get the idea. Those chords sound so out of place, like something out of a work by Debussy almost.

Another trick is playing outside the key, but not too far. Like, if the song is in A minor, do a solo in E, D, G and/or B minor.

Re: Apeshit (read: very good) drummers.

Yes, but he also plays the regular beat on the cymbals at the same time, and he doesn't start the 4 beats at the start of the regular measure; he kinda intersperses them on weird off-beats. oic, by the way, I wasn't trying to imply that he's a bad -or even okay- drummer, I've heard his recent work ...

Re: Modern Orchestral Compositions

One of my favorite orchestral works of all time is Gandolfi's piece The Garden of Cosmic Speculation .

Re: Apeshit (read: very good) drummers.

quantum field theory I was just listening to The Sound of Muzak earlier today, and discovered he breaks up the 7/4 measures into 4 evenly spaced beats . Ridiculous.

What the spork said. Paul Hindemith's harmony book is relatively light and it comes with a lot of excersices, but you need to know some basic theory to follow it. I recommend it.

Re: Jazz scales

Lydian b7 (t-t-t-st-t-st) is a rad scale. You can use it over dominant 7th chords. For example, if you're playing a G7 chord, you can improvise on G lydian b7. Also, I second Smiling Hobo. As a tip, you can usually switch from the blues scale to the dorian mode (t-st-t-t-t-st) to give it more oomph....
