I enjoy improvising more than anything on guitar. It just IS INTENSE.

improv. I can't sit down and write a solo. It sounds like ass after im done and there is no emotion.

I like a lot more written solos, improvising is only good if you know what are you doing, and usually I don't.

Same, I like to have a game plan but it's too hard to remember all of stuff and it keeps things intreasting not to have them set in stone.

Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm just playing along to a friend of mine doing chords or something, I'll improvise some easy stuff. On the other hand, if I'm doing some technical death metal and whatnot, I'll at least have a rough outline of the sweeps(generally) and key changes I'm gonna be using, if not a fully pre-written solo.

Both or none.

As long as it sounds good, I really don't give a shit.

when i write my solos i usually kind of lay down guidelines of what im going to do, and when im going to do them, but rarely fully write out one.

Solos are overrated.


just because you can't play one yourself...

Totally depends. Usually improv because you can get tons of emotions(not that you can't otherwise).

But you can't bash written. Dave Gilmour would write 5 or so solos and piece them together until he liked it. And they were all incredible, and he didn't improv much live, at least to my knowledge.

So, either. It depends on the guitarist and the genre.

Music was created for many things.

That fucking statement made me angry for some reason, thus my reaction. The fact is, I can write, and play many solos.

I still think they're overrated.

It depends really. I've heard some really shitty improvisations in place of written solos before. Usually when I'm improvising, I'll play something really good, stop, and write it down. And there you go. I have a written solo from improvising.
#24
I improvise until I play something thats good, then I tinker with that and hopefully I'll come up with something good
