A common problem encountered by most guitar players who are learning to solo on the guitar is to sound more "musical". What does "musical" or even creative mean anyway? Well, there tons of answers to this question... However, a very basic concept is very often disregarded by guitarists...Your solo must ALWAYS refer to the melody of the song. No matter how many licks and scales you know, if your solos have no connection with the original melody of the song, you are going to bore your audience big time! So, how do you add more melody to your guitar solos? Here's a straightforward approach to to practice it: 1) Select a chord progression/song melody (choose a tune that you know well, e.g., Autumn Leaves) 2) Start playing the melody for 4 bars 3) rest (or just play chords) 4) Solo over the chord changes that come next Do this for 30 minutes and then reverse the order: 2) Start soloing for 4 bars 3) rest 4) Play the song melody Then, relax, do something else and, after a nice break, go back to the guitar and play just for the fun of it. Be patient practicing this way for some time. You will start noticing that your improvisations will have more song melody and will sound more like compositions, rather than a mechanical show of scales and arpeggios.
