Hey guys, I've been playing for like seven months now, and I have a little soloing problem.

For some reason I can improvise at soloing really well, but for some reason I cant go on a set pattern when playing like a metallica or an AiC solo or even writing my own then playing them. It almost feels too mechanical for me to recreate stuff.

Is this a problem for anyone else? Also, how are ways to break this?

I have the same problem.
I can improvise over a chord progression well, but I can't make up solos.
Well... I can sort of... but in the end they all end up sounding the same.
Call me Wes.

Are you a play-by-ear kind of guy? I have this same problem. Still steers me away from doing covers of other bands. Just have to practice over and over and over to get it, read tabs, memorize, etc.
