This may be a generic question, but hopefully you can understand where I'm coming from.

My soloing doesn't sound as "round" as I would like. It's kind of square, not too much variation in tempo or rhythm. I'm looking to play more funk/jazz/rock sort of solo's, like trey anastasio. Not quite as good but thats a good example of a solo that sounds full and round. any help or techniques? much appreciated thanks!

I've never smoked before but it looks like fun.
Learn the solo's you fidn interesting.

Found an interesting rhythm in a lick?

Then take the rhythm and change notes.

Want to go further?

Leave out notes or extend on it.

More further? change the accents.

Starting a sextuplet (6 notes to 1) on the down beat or upbeat or even start them on the 2nd note of the sextuplet could make a world of a difference.

Really just "explore"
