Example #4.

This example uses a more arpeggio based idea, and also utilizes the handy concept of moving an idea up a half-step. This is frequently used by all the best jazz and fusion players out there, and is an excellent way to approach outside playing, since it enables you to use relatively simple ideas, but still flavor them against the underlying harmonic structure.

Just remember, the most important thing about outside playing is not the notes you choose, it’s how you play them, and how you get back inside the key and chord.
