Watch the Improvisational Solo online guitar lesson by Bill Evans from The Language of Improvisation

Here I am demonstrating a jazz solo while playing on a blues in Bb. I keep the solo simple in the beginning and make it more complex as the solo progresses. Take your time when improvising and “ telling your story. “ The more you take your time, starting with simple phrases, the more interesting your solo is going to be. By taking your time, you leave something for yourself to play in the middle and the end of your solo. The anticipation of some great lines is something that keeps the listener interested in listening to you improvise.
