: Having a problem developing my own style. Everything I play sounds like the artist I copy from. Right now I am a Snooky Pryor sound alike. Does it take a long time to finally develope a style of your own? thanks....jim

When you play other peoples music your supposed to sound like them. try practicing without playing along with a song. Play what's in your head, make up stuff as you go along. Invent your own runs, riffs, and turnarounds. Pull together little bits of what you know mix and match till they sound good to you.Try adding a little of your own touches to songs,flourishes,warbles, little upbends at the end of run etc. Play your own stuff a while every time you practice and before you realize it you will have your own style.
