My advice to you guys is when you get in that situation again, think less is more. I used to think I have to do this crazy solo when I get in situations like that and actually it sounds better to know the basics of improv and just let notes “breathe.” Basically what I mean by that is that it is ok to hold a half note or two in a progression, and try to aim to hit the chord changes instead of trying to jam in as many notes as possible into a solo. I learned the hard way that less is better with fiddle jammin’, and it takes a lot time to play crazy improv solos until you get to a certain point. If you know nothing about improv, this post might not make sense to you yet. Ask me questions if you have them!
