      One thing I've changed recently is when I'm trying to pick up on a song from scratch is finding the main melody line and playing a simplified version of it or a (in my mind) clever variation of it in the groove with the drums. I find that it really helps me lock into a song and serve it better than thinking "I can play these notes on these scales over these chords". Like I'll try and nut out exactly what the main (usually vocal) line is, and cut it in half or so, really getting back to what the double bass did in classical music. McCartney I think constructed a lot of his basslines this way, I started doing it after learning a bunch of his lines.
