If It Is Not On The Scale, But Is Moving To A Note On The Scale Or In The Chord, It Should Work.

In the previous section, we saw how that scale runs sometimes had to be modified to include half steps. This is an example of the third rule: If it is not on the scale, but is moving to a note on the scale or in the chord, it should work. Unfortunately, this rule is also an “anything goes” catchall, which makes it difficult to describe fully. Hopefully these few examples will serve to introduce the concept.
