Hiya

Me and a friend are doing a springstien style version of the classic "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" for a school concert around Christmas. So yeah, we need some tips on some solo's we could add, how to add them, any extra ideas. The whole idea is do an improv of it in a nice rock format. So yeah, any ideas?

I recommend pentatonic fun with some added notes (of course) in bluesy/rock style, and maybe including the vocal line...

It would really go nicely with the song.

You could put a bass solo if your bassist is good.
And do it really funky.

Cool ideas guys. I don't think we will do the metal one, have a nice bluesy on instead. Im the bassist so yeah, i think i could play some funky solos, and i know what you mean with the Sax so i better start looking around for one. Now thats cleared up, costumes or not?
