i have never really practiced improvising or making my own stuff to backing tracks. i took the backing track from zack wyldes 'farewell ballad' cuz its kinda slow at only 75 bpm and sounds nice. my problem is i find myself losing feel of the time because im trying to concentrate on what im playing and make it sound cool and also follow the chord changes. so how are u suppose to keep good timing while making it sound cool and while following chord changes at the same time!! just feels like im all over the place ...
im having trouble keeping in time -yeah

when i play over a backing track or something ill start playing and tapping my foot and then ill start playing and then when ill just try to come up with a lick or something and try to come up with some good phrasing and when i do that then i just lose the feel of the time
