Hey all, I'm versed in playing lead in blues I, IV, V context where you can just use one scale (pentatonic) the whole time, but I'm trying to broaden my horizons, and I'm not sure how! So my question is, for music like jazz, country or bluegrass (where the the good old pentatonic don't cut it) what the freak do you do? Change scales for each chord? I've heard reference to jazz players playing one scale for the chords are in one "key center" and then changing scales for the next "key center"... Is this how it's done? So when you play something other than blues, is your brain constantly working getting ready to shift to the next scale? So I started learning my major scales (and modes) but have no idea how to apply this now. How does this all work? What's the over-all philosophy for playing music other than the pentatonic blues?? THANK YOU for all helpful responses!
