This week we are starting on soloing on Skippy's Dream. I am going to give you a lot of my standard ideas and riffs for soloing on this. They are meant to help you find your way around a 1/6/2/5 progression. They are not meant to be a solo per se. The idea is to learn some of the patterns that I use as an "example" of things you could play and many of these riffs are ideas from which I build my solos, at least in part. I want you to learn as many of these as you can but the point is to listen to other guitarists, horn players, keyboard players playing tunes based on I Got Rhythm changes and get some solos, riffs, melodies in your head and try learning some of them. It's a long process and it takes a lot of time, research and practice on your part to actually learn how to improvise on this type of thing. If you take my advice and really develop your ear and also your knowledge of scales it should help immensely. I'll try to put together a list of artists and tunes to listen to.
