I know the chord shapes in my progression (G C G Am D G), the scale pattern underneath and I know the song I'm playing by heart. And yet - while I start soloing the song is gone. I can't make it sound like the song even though I'm highlighting SOME chord tones, for each chord in the progression.
How should it be?
[This guy] is basically playing a solo and yet, you can hear the song underneath even though he's playing a thousand notes a second.
I can't tell but could it be he's developing each chord in the progression by playing a lot more chord tones? Almost throwing the chord in your face so you can hear the progression? :
Maybe I'm not formulating this question correctly but my purpose is to solo, even without a backing track, and yet portray a sense of song. An analysis of the above musician's playing maybe? Thank you.
