Hey there... Thought this would be the right place to go. I've been playing bass for two years now, and I consider myself a good bassplayer. I groove, I can play most styles and make good use of many techniques (fingers, slapping, picking) and I can run all the scales up and down the neck. So now, my next step is learning to do a solo. Problem is, I suck. It just ends up with some stupid scale going up and down, or some pathetique nursery melody. I'm just bad at improvising. Anybody who got some good advice? I don't really know how to "think" when soloing. How to think up patterns and stuff. Are there any basics, and also some more-advanced-than-basic-tricks to use? Thanx in advice...
