You must BECOME the guitar....each note an extension of your inner-most being in order to make each solo yours and yours alone. ;) 8)

Hahaha! While I certainly respect Randy Rhoads, I don't want to become like him. :) I just meant that you gotta put yourself into the solo....or it won't really be YOU.

Essentially, the things that I like to keep my attention on, when jamming, is the flow of the song's melody behind my ( what I like to refer to as) association to the song, the change and consistency in the over-all texture, and how that solo part is going to affect the song. As in . . . will the solo part bring more attention to the beginning, middle or end of the song. This point usually depends on the lyrical content and/or the strength of the riffing in the instrumental pieces. I think that getting over the technical aspect of playing guitar might be where your stuck. You've almost aquired your technician's license, let's say. A suggestion that might work for you could be to pick out whatever lick or riff you happen to notice coming up multiple times in your improvisation, then apply it to every song you jam, in a number of different spots in each song. Otherwise, I could be wrong, you know. LOLOL
