When improving your playing one must practice many different techniques. First check out Chowy's new lesson, "Andy Timmons Inspired Modal Soloing", and then post a reply to today's topic. Do you ever sing along with the melody? How important is it to sing/hum along with your playing?

Before I use to not sing melodies. But now I do and it's helped me become a way more "melodic" player.

Musical instruments were designed out of nature and the human body so you can't go wrong biggrin.gif

I definitely think it's a good idea! smile.gif You first have to hear the music in your head, sing it and then play it on the guitar biggrin.gif

For me, it helps to sing everything I hear and I even replicate the sounds. I even make the "chug-chug" sounds of a distorted power chord. All of this helps my inner musicality as well as internalising all the musical material and helps me to appreciate sound, as I do a ton of music production work. I even record these weird noises as a basis for my tracks.

I haven't done it, I don't like my voice singing. I can hear stuff in my head sometimes, but I don't always organize it.

I'm sometimes singing, but always trying to "sing" it in my mind before play, at least the ending parts of phrases if something is fast.
