Ok! This sounds good for me. In order to know where we are right now, the first task is to choose a minor backing track, record an improvisation and post it here.

I recommend you to use the backing of one of these two lessons, but if you have other idea, you're welcome:

Nice ideas happening there. I can hear that your note choices is tasty over the backing which is not a small thing. There are some things lacking on your solo that can be learnt by listening and playing some of the licks from the original lesson.

- Melodic motive: If you listen to the original lesson, you will notice that the whole thing is connected, there is a leit motive that evolves there. The use of call response, and the fact of a main idea that evolves is lacking on your solo.

- Breathing: The use of silence between phrases lets phrasing breath. Your solo is also lacking this.

- Shorter phrases: I feel that your phrases has too many notes and sometimes sound like exercises, don't you feel it?

The next step is learning the original lesson, analyzing how the licks are related, how silence is used, and how the whole thing evolves. Write down "concepts" or "ideas" that you get from analyzing and learning this solo. Then, create a new solo trying to apply this concepts.

So next thing is making a solo over the same backing track applying all the above? Yeah,you're totally right about the silence,I can feel it..

Yes, a new solo applying concepts that you could learn from the solo recorded on the original lesson.

Hi Chris, it sounds really good! Your groove and bending are very good on this one. I heard it twice to think on what things and I think that you could experiment with:

- A cleaner tone that allows you to have more dynamics while playing.
- Using less "nervous" vibrato. I mean that you should let the note sound and then make the vibrato grow gradually.

These are two small details but that could add something extra to your current solo.

Good job!
