Question to all the players(and shane too)

I am currently working on a couple of tunes for a friend of mine (his group does orignals only) and I have hit a bit of an impass in the writing process(the problem when you have trained in theory for 15 years)The tunes are in A minor (very dark and desperate) they would put you in mind of something from the west coast in the mid 90's(hey we write what we feel) Well I Now have to come up with leads for these tunes.I could stay diatonic to the scale or as I have been noodling with going for the the feel thing (c lydian) with of course passing tones to keep the tone correct but to impart musical tension (thusly a state of flux)

I know it is easy to stay to the safe and sound in the tonal zone but when we walk in the wasteland for a bar or two we create a place were we can say to others hey!!!! I do have something to say listen to what it is!!!!!So what do you all think?(hey cran man I know you know were I am coming from) I just want some opinions whatever they may be (harmonic minor demons need not apply)


“You know its funny I was thinking about what you said. The preeminent truth of our age is that you can not fight the system. But if as you say the truth is fluid that the truth is subjective then maybe you can fight the system. As long as just one person refuses to be broken refuses to bow down” “But can you win?” “Every time I say NO”
