Can you guys/girls suggest any certain books, DVD's, websites, or just straight up advice to help me!.. Ive been playing for years but really need some help taking my playing to the next level Well Im sad to say, Im a pretty accomplished player around town... but its a good thing the audience doesnt know any better because I REALLY need some help on my soloing! I'm stuck with my same ol "bag of tricks & licks" that I often incorporate into every song I play with small changes to mask my lack of ability. I mostly play Country Rock, Blues, Rockabilly, & some newer texas style music... HERE IS WHERE I REALLY LACK OR NEED IMPROVEMENT (In order of priority). 1. Ability to solo over minor keys... I would say this is my most embarrassing problem. 2. Ability to play solos that dont just sound like "licks" I want to play solos that almost sound like they are telling a story... and extension of the song... almost like missing words that the vocalist didnt say.. Im sure most of you know what I mean by this...? 3. Breaking out of the pentatonic box & make more use of the fretboard... I seem to reside inside the Pentanic box a lot... or just below the box (not sure what exactly you call that area.. but there are some notes in the 2-3 frets lower than the pentatonic box that I use a lot... especially on country) 4. How to move my solos smoothly as the keys change Lets just start with that..... I've tried Fretboard Logics...didnt really care for it or get much out of it.. and I really spent some time with it... Any other suggestions??? I REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYONES HELP!!!
