Outside Advanced

We're now going to use a trick that instantly produces a pretty dramatic outside sound. We play the Superlocrian scale built on the minor 3rd of our home key. For example, if we're playing in A minor, we jump into C Superlocrian (C Db Eb Fb Gb Ab Bb). Now, the spelling of C Superlocrian might be a little confusing: F-flat is the same note as E, but it has this name because there's already an E-flat. This is just music theory convention, so you may find it easier to think of it as plain old E.
