I have 3 years at the Hospital I work at (its the Psych Hospital in PGH that just had the shooting, I am usually walking to that building then, but was just getting back in town). I just switched to unpaid in January, so newly broke . I had to sell my Gibson Classic and some other gear for the guitar, plus it was a really nice price. I finally got to play my guitar last night, but had to record something for school (there is a competition for making a 'Counseling Psych' video I suppose for advertisement, my friend and I decided to do a cross between Flight of the Conchords and the Freescore commercials). It was tough making something relatively mainstream after reading 100 pages of jazz theory that I want to apply. I need to stop reading until I get a chance to put some of it to use.
Quote from: ShockedAndPersuaded on March 18, 2012, 12:56:55 PMHere's some food for thought. This is something I've been trying to keep on deck when improvising over a dom7/9th jam. It's a pretty simple concept but I thought I'd throw it out there since the Lydian family is being discussed. This idea is based around a half diminished played from the 3rd of the tonic. ie a c# half dim is the same as an A9. In this example I would throw in a C# Lydian dominant scale to play "outside" or create tension. I had this on my mind Friday night at the gig and was partly due to this thread. So thank you stiles and heady for helping jog my memory.
