While the band is making sound "X" happen.. (X being the chord of the moment..) A soloist..in a can start a phrase on ANY of the 12 tones..as long as you know what to do with that tone..

or how to properly treat that tone..

Or where to go from there...

My guess is true... (Presuming the chord is static, or the changes move slowly... Im thinking that if -according to your ears, tastes and idea's,- you play a random note to begin a phrase.. and land on what you think is an outside tone... - well, get on inside quick and mess around there for a bit.. If you land on a way to plane jane note, spice it up with some outsiders in neat way... The thing is...is it possible to think like this in a fast tempo piece?

Basically it's true, if someone knows how to go about it, pretty much ANY note can be played. Keep in mind also some listeners just may not enjoy something hammered on being a half step off in the same octave. Where a simple slir/slide from that note going a half step up or down easily sounds pleasant.

Generally speaking, you simply DON'T want to do that. Thinking about it is something you should be doing while practicing, not really while playing. Improvised solo's are a result of lots of practice, patterns, a dash of being cleaver and even a hint of dumb luck comes into it now and again. Wink
