Killer stuff dude, also interesting soloing! love the carving guitar tone super fusiony. Any advice on getting the tonality at 1:47 solo, such as though process or scale choice etc?

Thanks man!

That section I'm soloing over at that point is over a C pedal tone, so I am kind of focused on extremely wide range lines with tension tones and little to no chord/scale relationships.

I'm basically weaving to and from notes I am targeting in the moment for tension.

I tend to use a TON of chromaticism, symmetrical diminished ideas in these moments.

Since it was improvised and over a year ago that's the best I can tell you.

I'd say listen to the greats like crazy.

Don't just stick to fusion. Go back to Charlie Parker. Joe Pass. John Coltrane. Mike Brecker. Immerse yourself in it. Hours of it. As you develop your theory, start matching it with what you've been hearing.

Do the same with all the fusion greats as well.

I have a blog that covers a few things in this area.

Damn,man,your playing is so smooth. I Love the sound of the leads when they're doubled with...that...well,I can't remember the name. The orchestral section caught me by surprise!

And as far as the doubled sound. On the melodies, it's just a wurlitzer sound. On the solos, there isn't any doubling since it's all improvised.
