Guitar Improvising
Rock - Jazz - Blues - Heavy Metal - Country
Fret Board Freedom...

After all is said and done, those that become master
improvisers have achieved "fret board freedom"

How do you get the freedom on the guitar that the
masters have?
Wasting time practicing things that don't help is the
biggest setback. It is harder reversing bad habits than
learning the right way the first time.

While scales and arpeggios are important for
understanding the structure or theory of chords they are a
waste of time if you practice them too much.

You must practice melodies, lines, licks, and phrases
that you will eventually use to improvise with.

These melodies or licks, whatever you want to call them,
must be in your head and at your fingertips so that you
grow musically.

Over time you will alter and rearrange the licks and they
will become your licks. You will learn the neck of the
guitar in the fastest way possible and become a
proficient improviser.
