Don't get caught up in too much technical thinking. Don't try to break things down. Don't worry or concentrate on rhythyms or sequences. Don't think about anything. Improvising is the worst time to try and practice. Practice time is when you practice. Hopefully with enuff practice you will learn eno...

Re: I think I like too many styles

Here's my problem, I like listening to and playing just about every type of music out there. I know there are a few genres I dont like, but I love playing most kinds.
