"When creating a lead guitar part, put the instrument down and sing the kind of lead you want to hear."

This is something I struggle to do - I always pick up the guitar and improvise until I get something. Actually freeing yourself from the guitar will get you a different kind of melody, and you will then be forced to learn to play it, which will push your envelopes a little! I really must make a habit of doing this ...

Very important exercise for all players. Often we develop a melody in the brain that doesn't relate to the technique that we are used to on the guitar. So this, as Andrew said, opens up new possibilites and ideas.

That´s true, there are a lot of good stuuf that came to me in the street so I recorded it singin to my Cell Phone, it just not the line, but the tonality. Another good thing is hearing a backing track alone end imagine hat kind of sound will be good to it, and what kind of melodyc development will fit into it. Another way in this development thing is t make some kind of development draft on paper.

I've also used this technique for as long as I remember, Great tip David smile.gif
I purchased a few of these years back and pretty much always have one on me. Like Gera said you never know when you'll come up with an idea.

Thats a great device ! I was thinking of getting something similar..Tell me , what is the sound quality of it and does it have some kind of limiter (to be able to record loud enviroment for example gig or practice room ? ) smile.gif Just for capturing ideas.. wink.gif
