"Red Sky Warning"- A Guitar Improvisation
Performed and produced by Mark Jeffery Campayno
This was a very special few moments of improvisation. I used A aeolian (A natural minor) mostly but I see a dorian phrase or two in there. I tried to get it to sound a little more "outside" with an occasional chromatic/altered tone always remembering to keep the lines in the tonal orbit, which gives aeolian its character.
I even like the sloppy trem bar work as it contributed to the unsettled quality of the whole session.
This is a really great backing track and it enabled a flow of ideas to come forth that where very descriptive.

After listening, it gave me a vibe of an onimous storm approaching. From there it was obvious to color it up with a bit of thunder and guitar lightning. Out of all the improvisations I've done this one is my favorite. This is "in the zone" playing as I don't remember even a second of this one. Kind of chill music verses acid jazz.

Remember, if you want to learn the techniques of improvising, you have to keep an open mind. Churning out note after note doesn't lend itself to descriptive playing. Say something with your notes and you will hear the difference.
