Mixing Scales

Mixing Scales

Postby sarraqum » Tue Apr 18, 2006 10:09 am

A long long while back I've read an interview with Jerry in one of those guitar magazines you hear so much about. One of the questions that popped up was about scales and Jerry said he mixed scales........I remember he said he mixed Lydian with some other one.

I know in theory its possible as all scales run one into the other but anyone cares to shed any light on that?

I am not sure about the mixed scale you mention but the article below does go into some of that along with a bunch of other stuff from Garcia (and others) about his playing. Worth checking out.
