I know that there is no a right answer on this question but anyway I have a problem with a noodling, even just with those 4+1 notes. I think I'm doing pretty much good job with a copying Griff's licks and phrases but when I have to make up something on my own it just really suck. How do you guys working on this? Try to make a lick or two without a backing and then put a backing on and incorporate those ideas or just play along with a backing and what ever comes at that moment? Also I saw somewhere that good players know a tons of licks and just use them at a different key and tempo. Mike did a great noodling on the SWS solo #2.
