How can i get away from playing box patterned riffs?! Especially in minor grooves i need to learn how to incorporate other notes and maybe even switching positions, but i don't find switching positions really necessary. Or is the box pattern not even a big deal? With minor stuff only two notes aren't in the pattern, and i do play those (the 3rd and 6th scale steps), but most of the time i just ifnd myself using fifths and other box patterned notes to find a groove. when playing major stuff, i always try to go to a scale position, but its still hard to step away out of the box pattern of 1-3 1-3 2-3 because those ntoes are the mos timportant notes of the mode. HELP!!! in a nutshell, how cna i make more grooves and stuff off of unboxed patterned stuff and play while changing positions or does anyone have an example of stuff to help me write some grooves like that?
