Have been messing around with this process

shared it on the other forum...

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1q-j4sohpgAf6tMuF8ymM-GJ4TvIXgxKkzkNVXgTL8mM/edit

it's a long read...comments are enabled on the doc and I'm open to all suggestions/criticisms/tomato throwing etc.

Fun stuff...? Similar approaches informed the content of the recent clips I've posted.

Funny you brought up this. I've been just totally immersed in "Creative Chordal Harmony For guitar" by Mick goodrick and Tim Miller. The whole concept is about triad pairings, two triads for each chord. The possibilities to open voicings and melodic ideas are just infinite. totally changed my melodic approach to improvisation. Have you seen this book?

Yeah Tung I have the new book...related concepts for sure, but different. In my doc I'm just trying to provide one possible way to organize all possible 3 or 4 note chords within a tonality, but the modal compression book is more about using a specific technique to create a somewhat specific sound.

That book is crazy though...certainly an interesting way to break up the modes.

I think both your way and the Miller/Goodrick has similarity of breaking it down to small tetrachords. It'll automatically make the improvisation more chordal fragments rather than scalar. I've been trying to have a balance of both for more interesting solos.
