Playing ‘Out’

Playing ‘out’ is very common in jazz and fusion circles, as it adds tension-resolution to your phrasing. In the video I show a few examples of this and of how to get ‘that’ sound.

Tips: 1- always use phrases that are very recognisable, with very strong melodic content.

2- use this techinque at the end of a bar, or a section of the tune

3- resolve on a strong note, preferably chord tone

4- in the end, this has a lot to do with HOW you play than WHAT you play!

best of luck!
