"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

You may not be aware of this, but we currently have over 1300 pages of news, tips, and reviews on the site. It doesn't hurt to go back and take a look at old topics, as was the case with yesterday's Tips and Tricks article, a rehash of the lush potential within the Altered Scale. Thanks to those of you who reaped public praise on the site author's Facebook account. We take your compliments (and of course your criticisms) seriously! We appreciate you spreading the word.

If you haven't already checked it out, we go over our justifications for investing so much time on the Altered Scale and some of its "kin." There's even a cool accompanying exercise you can play around with to increase familiarity and sharpen your skills.


Enjoy! Altered States
