I was curious about some feedback on an issue I have been wrestling with lately. During the day I have music melodies and stuff going through my head. The problem is that when I get to my guitar, I find myself playing the same old lines and runs. So I would be curious about some of the things that you guys have done to translate the beatiful melodies in your head down to the guitar when you pick it up.

first of all, have a read through those articles. some of the most mind opening and informative stuff you'll ever read.

from my own experience, i think ear training and being able to identify intervals and chords really well is a large part of it. when i hear stuff in my own head, i "see" it in terms of intervals and scales and how i want it to sound etc.

i won't go into depth about what happens in my head musically, because i don't even understand it myself, it just works. i can't put it into words. but i think the key is linking your mind to your guitar through ear training. SOMETHING like that.
