Adding Chords out of Key. November 2016

Chords C Dm Em F G Am Bdim are derived from the notes of the C major scale.

A method is required to add chords that do not belong to the Major scale.

Theory proposes that we add major chords.

Here are some chord options.

Ebmajor
Abmajor
Bbmajor

Flatten the 3rd chord Em to Ebmajor
Flatten the 6th chord Aminor to Ab major.
Flatten the 7th chord Bdiminished to Bbmajor.

Use the major scale relating to each of these chords to solo...but try to do it seemlessly....don't make the change obvious...(unless you want to).
