Hi all, I have a problem, and would appreciate any tips from you guys. When jazz soloing, do you actually count the bars? As the speed increases, I find I follow the chords less and less, and use my ears more. Consequently, when there is a sudden and dramatic chord change, I miss it. I also lose track of where I am, i.e was that 24 or 36 bars kinda thing, and the longer the solo, the more likely I am to get lost! It happens even more if the phrases are unusual lengths. Your wisdom, please, ladies and gents!
