    Hey guys,

    Thought some of you might enjoy this Jazz Funk Groove Backing Track, which is made for practicing the altered scale - aka Super Locrian Mode - as a dominant function!

    It's got a funky Nile Rodgers rhythm guitar vibe to it - and the progression is

    Cm9 - G7alt




    Rather than staying on G Altered throughout, it resolves to C minor, so you can play around with the tension/release going on :)

    Scale suggestions:

    Cm9 chords -

    C Minor scale, C Dorian Mode, C Melodic Minor, C Minor Pentatonic/Blues Scale

    G7alt -

    G Altered Scale: G Ab Bb B Db Eb F (G)

    G Altered Scale (G Super Locrian) is the 7th mode of the Ab Melodic Minor Scale.


    Have fun shredding some uber-jazzy altered scale sounds :shred:
