Sorry for my first post being a begging one but here goes:
I've got gypsy picking recently, and have been working through the techniques and becoming quite proficient (get it if you haven't by the way). However, despite improving my technique, the notes I'm playing tend to sound awful.
I've been improvising over minor swing and I have a feel for which notes will sound good, but this has just appeared over hours of playing over it again and again, but with other songs I'm playing such as Swing 42 and Daphne I can't seem to figure it out.
I'm guessing my problem is that I'm mostly self taught until recently and have absolutely no musical theory knowledge.
So, any suggestions?
