from Playing Outside II
by J Fisher
If I had to name the number-one question people ask me about improvisation, it's: "How do you play outside? How do you play outside the key center and make it sound right? It sounds so cool when I hear Chick Corea or Herbie Hancock do it."
Well it's no big secret. Playing outside is not a difficult technique you use, really. The hard part is learning to use it tastefully. In this lesson, we're going to be talking about using symmetry to create outside lines. It's not very difficult but when you get the hang of this thing, it will add a lot of drama to your solos. People will wonder, "Where did he get that idea?" Stick around. You're going to like this... Launch the lesson.
