Bright Size Life (solo ideas)


Silver Member
Hey guys.

I'm performing the tune Bright Size Life (Pat Metheny) for my end of year recital as well as at an audition for another music school.

I'm fine with playing the tune, but my problem is soloing over it.

My current solos tend to embellish the melody, but I feel that I'm just messing around and not saying anything or adding anything to the song.

I've only found one version with a drum solo on Youtube and it's not very inspiring. Anyone have any suggestions? Any rhythmic ideas that might work? Any ideas for what the band can do behind me during my solo?

o_O ps.
