Watch the Bossa Integrated Solo online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Flying Solo

Another issue guitarists have is wanting to show off what they can play in every piece! When you force the music in this way it really becomes un-musical and is the sign of an immature player. Ironically, you can impress people more with your true musicality by letting the music breathe and letting the solo develop in a beautiful/logical fashion. There will be plenty of time to burn... maybe later in the same piece, or on another piece. And trust me on this, people are moved far more by what comes out of your heart rather than your fingers!
