Wednesday Minor Class: How and what to do when it’s your time to solo
You’ll learn how to sing your solos which mean that you are saying something other than running scales.  Slow it down and feel it before you start speeding up.  A lot of young musicians like to play as fast as they can and they think that they are impressing someone but if they play those same notes slow, they’ll find out the truth.  Boring!. A good way of learning how to solo is to be able to sing your part like that of a lead singer or saxophone which is one note at a time. That’s a good starting point.  I’ll give you an insight on who to listen to and who I listened to for ideas on traditional blues piano styles.
