Okay so here's a fun,
funky track to work on.
It's just one cord,
it's a G seven, concert.
So I'm playing alto, so I'm gonna play
over E seven, if you're playing tenor or
soprano that would be A seven.
And I'm just gonna play some ideas.
It's just one chord,
like I said, one dominant chord.
So I just kind of wanna give you
an example of some ideas of using
incorporating blue scales,
incorporating melodic minor scales and
just kinda getting funky and I really just
wanted to provide this track for you so
you had something kind of, it's kind of
hard to find tracks that just have one
chord unless you create them yourself.
So, I wanted to give this to you and
I figured what the heck,
I might as well play over it too.
I love it.
So, here is a funky track
over concert G seven.
