Just to clarify, these ideas are not grammy nominated or even original! Take a solo section that I’m trying create so that I can reliablly play that may have some features of the original. Chances are that the opening licks oare iconic, possible to play and only one or two bars long so start with them and jam around from there, messing around and sounds like a hot mess. Ideas start to form, but often need to create transitions between sections or there is a point where a certain vibe is the way to go… Usually the intent is correct but the delivery is butchered so I would assess what I’m trying to do and try and simplify it if possible or find something else that has the sonic intent that I can pull off.
I have such little consistency in pretty much everything I do on guitar. Its has always been a monumental effort to keep anything going. Even the ‘go-to’ licks up and leave the building! Lol. I have had those moments where something comes together and I think that its a breakthrough moment, but I can never bottle that mofo and take it away with me.
