    No hover brah























    For me? I heard J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. Holy **************** he sucks. Nobody wants to hear atonal flurries of misguided note selection mixed with out of pitch bends.



    I realized I did the same thing so I'm working on playing in key, and hitting bends properly.

    For me it was actually trying to write solos to songs in a band. It really improved my playing out of necessity, and it made me WANT to actually get better to play some of the ideas that were happening in my head.

          Just learning different scales and modes and getting outside that pentatonic box. Charting music and learning from ear has helped me greatly. I just recently got Tom Quayles Rock to Fusion DVD from licklibrary. It's killer but I'm slowly learning from it. And I still suck.

                          Yep, buying a looper pedal to practice.

                            I am hopelessly stuck in the pentatonic scale. But learning the pattern of the scale all over the neck made my solos far more interesting. Forcing myself to include different techniques in every solo helps too.
