Soooo I've learned a good amount of theory.
But I have a question for those more experienced.
I played a small g chord on the g string which would look like this starting on the g string and fret # g-12 c-13 g-15 going up to the high e string.
after that i played on the same strings but somewhat of a g# chord, i dont' feel like figuring it out.
it looks like this starting on the g string going up: g#/Ab-13 b-12 d#/eb-11.
Can someone explain why it sounds really dark jazzish?
like that evil jazzy stuff you hear that sounds neat.
thanks.

There you go.
Just a small thing i noticed while messing around.
Plus i like it.
There's another pair that gives me that kind of dark jazz sound.
does it have anything to do with a diminished scale?
I don't know, thanks for any help.

Ahhh.
I hadn't thought about those.
Well that certainly didn't take you long, haha.
thanks.

You're using it in an unusual way, and I kind of think it resolves better to the Ab chord, so I guess you're playing Ab Lydian #9.
