I saw the old post about improvising over slash chords, and thought I'd share an "on the fly" technique I often use.

I play off the diatonic triad, built from the slashed bass note.

EX: Over G/B (In G)
I'd play the Bm triad.

Then, I might expand on that. Maybe treat the Bm as a ii chord. Then, play a ii V (Bm - E7).

The E7 is just a little outside. Not so much, that I get into too much trouble! Laughing

You can keep going with this idea if you want to take it outside, or into another key. etc.

It works pretty well. Especially when you're "in the moment".

Let me know, how it works for you guys.

Cool so, using "harmonic extensions" you'll play these chords san root note: Gmaj7 add 9 ( B-7) and Gmaj6 b9 (E7)

Yeah, that's another way to think of them. Give it a shot. I'd like to hear what you come up with.
