This is my take from this week. Even though I have learned some solos I have trouble thinking of cool licks to play on the spot. WHen I learn a lick that I like from a solo (Say "time" by Pink Floyd or something) I will practice it in every key that I can. Like the solo in that song is in A major (F#m pent scale) but I will practice all the licks I like in Ampent, Em, Bm, C#m, Gm...

But then I still forget the licks after a while and have to go back to the solo to relearn them!

I am thinking I should change my way of learning to just one lick at a time, instead of trying to learn complete solos...

Your take was really chilled out Alex! I should take it slower for a bit smile.gif

It's a good idea to learn licks but what I would like to work with you on is creating your own licks! This is a perfect way to find your own sound and style!
The reason I recorded my solo is to give you ideas and when you will continue it you will be playing totally different things! Give it a try! Instead of playing someone else's licks play your own! smile.gif

I just moved to a new place so things have been kind of crazy. I have been improvising over Rancid, Social D, and Joan Jett a lot. I'm trying to come up with cool melodies and make it less busy.

I will try to post a video this week.
