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!
