While my ensemble and groove playing continue to improve, I have to say I'm not entirely happy with my soloing. I have spent the last year studying harmony, doing some transcribing and working on playing more melodic ideas in general. While I can see a marked improvement from a year ago, I'm having a hard time getting what I hear in my head to translate to the hands while improvising on stage (I guess I should mention that I played mostly in rock bands for the last 10 years and now am in an improvising band where I get 4 solos a night). What work has to be done to develop this? Is it something that comes with time?
