George Garzone told me "You can play anything over anything. just play it with conviction!" It sounds crazy but it's those times on a gig where I play some random thing over a chord that other musicians will ask me about after. You could play a diminished pattern over minor with conviction and attitude and it won't even really make sense on paper but after some kid is asking what the heck you were playing at that moment. You tell them a diminished scale and then they will play a diminished scale on every minor chord they see.
