Hi Tim,

I’ve learned your solo on ATTYA from that video, and it still puzzles me. I find your lines really interesting and would like to move my playing in that direction and learn more. At the tempos I usually jam at (instead of 300 in the video, we usually play it at 180 or so), would applying some of the ideas sound and feel too “outside” for a lot of people? For example – playing and thinking in G lydian over the 2-5-1 in G major starting on a C# over A minor seems rather foreign to me, since my current approach involves resolving lines going from the 3rd to 7th, 7th to 3rd etc. in a 2-5-1.

All great questions. The first thing to do is to watch this lesson. http://members.internetguitarl…..he-things/
It is a complete analysis of that solo. This will provide technical insight into how I am thinking about the phrases in the video.
There are several ways to improvise over 2 5 1 progressions. Sometimes, I play over each chord individually, resolving to the strong chord tones. Check out the 2 5 1 Course for more information. Also check out the Linear Vocabulary lesson videos.
Another way is to group all three chords into one scale. This gives a different sound. In the case of the G lydian over the 2 5 1 in G, at this tempo, it sounds like a big lydian color over that progression. At a slower tempo, you may choose to play over all three chords individually. It really depends on what you want to hear in the moment. I like variety, so I like to mix it up quite a bit.
“would applying some of the ideas sound and feel too “outside” for a lot of people?” It depends on the tempo and what type of musical color that you would like to play.
