Can anyone give me a clue as to what the fiddle is doing on George Strait's " Any old time ." How is he getting that" outside " sound?

Approaching chord tones from a semitone above or below, and playing the aproach note on the beat, and swinging like crazy ????

That's Johnny Gimble playing swing-jazz in a pretty straight :^) forward way. One of America's great fiddlers & I was lucky to have met him.



Johnny plays "Any Old Time" with George Strait:

Also study, Vasser Clement. Also study, Steph Grapelli.

If one is refering to outside as a jazz term, meaning to play the chordtones outside the key. Know your Blue notes. Get good at hearing harmonies like 9ths, and 11ths.

One very common way jazz players play outside is using Tritone substitution.
