OK, I'm looking for suggestions for approaches to play interesting stuff over regular Major chords (not Maj7). I sometimes jam with folks on rock & jamband type stuff that uses regular old 135 Major chords (G///D/C...). It's cool, and fun, but I dig trying to play more interesting stuff over it, but when I try to jazz it too much or use stuff off of diatonic Maj7 & min7 things, it's not cool to my ear. I'm gonna sit down with some Jimmy Herring, see what I can find, but thought I'd ask y'all for approaches. I try major scale, the three diatonic major pentatonics, and triads off of the key (thanks Tomo). Any other ideas? What diminished thing would work? Thoughts? As an aside, I am really starting to dig some jamband stuff, thanks to Sirius, the ones with guitarists that do it for me - Herring, Umphrey's Mcgee, Trucks, jazz-jam stuff, etc. I'm not into Kimock or the Phish dude - I just don't hear it. But that's cool.
