Not to brag, but I think this is quite a good quiz…


Suggest possible things that might go with the following chords:

1. C major triad
2. C, single note
3. Two bars rest
4. Ebmaj7/Emaj7
5. Dm13 +17
6. Something you can’t hear because the monitors are set up badly


Suggest possible uses for each scale:

1. Chromatic
2. Major (tempered)
3. Major (pythagoraen)
4. Dhirasankarabharani
5. Messiaen’s 5th mode of limited transposition
6. Decaphonic (equal temperment)

I dont know how much that will help one looking to improvise as straight scales make some pretty boring solos. I know thats not the point, but I am just saying phrases and licks based on segments if scales and jumps are much more interesting. That is one thing I fault many jazz improvisational books with, they dont explore many possibilities created by different interval movements of phrases.

I have heard of Decaphonic scales but I've never checked 'em out. But as you said Heavy he's gotta be kidding around.

I await my ban from the forums.

I would use pieces of the Argonian scale for each, just different pieces.

Well, at some point you have to leave the books alone and start exploring the possibilities of these scales and modes yourself. The books can't improvise for you!

Thanks all I'm laughing out loud! And yes I was joking - I mean who would use a C (single note) in these enlightened times?

Still I'm convinced the min7+17 chord is the future of Jazz! I know you all answered the quiz just fine, but how many of you have used the +17 in a solo this week?
