One little tip, rather than playing up and down notes in order, try playing notes in succession that aren’t near each other,View attachment 594943
Been working on (read noodling a lot) with backing tracks and my looping pedal. I’ve recently starting to focus more on scales and playing some lead stuff. I’m finding that when I play especially if I’m using the same scale on different tunes my lead work always sounds the same and more less like somebody running a scale rather than the guitar singing along with the rhythm part. Anybody got any good online resources to help learn phrasing better. Thanks everyone.

Another tip: play a little bit in the minor pentatonic, then, add in the two notes from the major pentatonic.
Another tip: learn a couple scales, like the natural minor scale (Aeolian) or the Dorian scale, and try switching to that for a couple phrases, and then back to the standard.
Sorry if these are simpleton ideas that everybody already knows.
Yeah.. its a real test and works.. don't go playing one note samba's at a gig though or you'll very soon see yourself slung out of the door..Steve Vai advocates playing one note for as long as you can in as many ways as you can… sliding or bending into it, different types of vibrato, etc.
