I have never cared for playing a solo in a cover exactly note for note from the record. To me, somebody else played that solo. I am not that person. I am me. I want to play my own solo. But I have found that if I have heard a tune enough times I might find myself quoting some of the original solo. And if the tune has a similar chord progression to another tune I might quote some of the other tune. For example, when I have to play "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" I sometimes quote a line from "Mainstreet" by Bob Seger. That line in "Mainstreet" also can be played while playing "Ramblin' Man" by the Allman Brothers Band. Though quoting a line from one tune and putting it in another tune isn't necessarily playing out of context. Though maybe playing an entire solo of variations of that line in "Mainstreet" for the entire "Ramblin' Man" solo might. But I might consider that a challenge. However, when I am playing "Ramblin' Man" there is a pretty good possibility that I am playing other "southern rock" favorites for an "audience" who may be into "southern rock". Some might not grok my variations of the "Mainstreet" line in "Ramblin' Man". Though I reckon it is up to me to decide how much I play those "Mainstreet" variations because I can't please everybody, don't feel like I have to try to please everybody, odds are pretty high nobody will be bothered enough by it to want to fight me about it, and eventually the tune will end and we will play something else.
