This is my attempt at one of my favorite A7X solos and one of the hardest thing's I've ever played in my life! It's still a work in progress...enjoy! (I had to improvise some bits as my strat doesn't have enough frets to get everything in the solo haha!)
Learning the hard way today that the Music Biz can throw you a curve ball...My band were supposed to have our most recent song placed on a pretty big TV show and it ended up not making the cut for the Episode.
At first when we found out we all excitedly rushed to get signed up to various royalty companies which cost us £200 each - money that none of us really have, In the middle of a pandemic that has put Musicians and the Self Employed under immense financial stress as it is. Defeated isn't the word!
Apologies for the rant, but I feel I can do it more safely/anonymously on here
So I was just teaching a private student not to think too much while improvising & I realised that I suffer from the same hesitation in some parts of my improv with 2-5-1's if I start to concentrate too much!
I decided to just sit with my guitar and force my fingers to continually play without thinking of where to go next - some interesting note choices to say the least, but putting that bit of pressure on really puts you to the test and helps your hands think on the fly
If you want to feel truly limited as a Guitar player, try and jam along to both choruses in this tune I feel personally attacked! (Spoiler alert: The 1st Chorus is in Eb Lydian and the 2nd Chorus is in E half b Lydian)
