I was messing around with my guitar yesterday and I started playing Whiskey in the Jar. So I'm playing the lead intro and that doesn't sound bad going from lead to rhythm but when I got to the place where Jerry soloed and I went from rhythm back to lead and it just sounded weird going from a nice steady rhythm with nice full sounding open position chords to a single note solo. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or is this a just greek to you? And if anyone does know what I'm talking about could someone please tell me how to make rhythm to lead sound less choppy. Thanks in advance.
You could get a loop pedal and prerecord some rhytm (or bass if you have one) and hit the pedal when you go to lead to have a nice full sound.
I use a digitech Jamman all the time and love it.
