Start From a Different Place

Just resist what you normally do.

Do you play solos that start low and end high?

Start high then.

Start with a barrage of 32nd notes.

Forget all that rubbish about having nowhere to go. That’s where you want to be.

You don’t want to have it all planned out.

Play twice as slow.

Play chords.

Play noises.

Strum a solo.

Play a semitone away from all the chords.

Don’t resolve.

Leave huge gaps.

Play a conversation.

Ignore everybody.

Mess with their minds.

Mess with your mind.

Boldly go where you haven’t gone before.

And use the Force.

Bon voyage!
