This is an example as something called sideslipping. There is also a video of Kenny Garrett playing an incredible side slipping solo with Miles Davis. However, I could not find it.
I love the way that fusion players can escape from the key and form these wonderful chromatic melodies.
I already know how you can substitute different chords and scales and infer harmonies in playing. I have been working on this quite a bit.
I wanted to know about sideslipping and if there is any theory behind it. It's something that really interests me and I could get into a lot.
I asked my teacher about it and he can't explain it. It's one of the only things he does without knowing why they work. He can sideslip really well, but doesn't know if there is even any theory behind it. A local monster pianist once asked him how he did it and he couldn't explain how. I really want to learn more about it.
I can do some basic escaping the key through sideslipping, but it's quite limited.
I guess that what I am trying to say is this:
Is there theory behind sideslipping or is it one of those things that you just pick up by ear? Can anyone help me out.
