Nine Below Zero

Solo - Lesson 2

The second half of this verse contains a lot more stuff, licks-wise than the first half. The internal conversation between the licks in the solo gets slightly more complex, so in that way it's maybe a little more challenging. There's more to remember, but as always - the real key to making it sound meaningful and expressive lies in the groove, the tones and the different shapes of the notes.

Hi Rick !! it s only .... "Amazing" ... the way everything is "floating" ... a little bit of the phrase here and there .. and everything got in place ... I begin to understand about to put an "idea" and comment on it and so on ... , write it , it s one thing , but play it ... it s "Amazing" ... if ever I m able to improvise like That ?!! I would say " I achived my Goal" !! Thank s again and again !!

That's great, Andre! It's like learning to speak a language. The more you hear it and understand it, the more you understand how to make your own statements in that language.
