    my band does 7 nation army - during it our lead singer introduces each member of the band and we all get a little solo - for the last while i've just kept the bass line going without soloing or anything like that but the guys actually want me to solo briefly.

    my problem is i am totally lost in terms of what to do! :crying:

    its probably my lack of music theory but i tried to apply my knowledge of scales (pentatonic) to it but i can't get anything that sounds right.

    could any one help me out?

    moderators i'm sorry if i've posted in the wrong place!

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    solo in the pentatonic blues or dorian scale of the first note of the song.
