    i've enjoyed very much the second tune , "fretless improvisation" : nice sound , good technique , melodic improvisation

    about solar , i hear sometimes some wrong notes , you should use the full range of the instrument ( from low notes to high notes ) , and play more with the rhythm ( pauses , triplets ect...) , but anyway the basic essentials are already there

    Good luck and keep practicing

    Thanks!

    I have a bad habit of sticking to one area of the fretboard when I'm working on improvisation, partly because I confine my study of the fretboard to one area only so I need to learn how to break away from that when I'm working on improvisation over chord changes.

    Thanks, that's essentially what I do now I but I need to break the habit I've developed of sticking to just one area of the fretboard which come from studying that way. If you're familiar at all with Gary Willis' fingerboard harmony you'll know what I mean.
