I've heard the term bandied about at some guitar players but never quite understood it...What is guitar noodling?

Seems to be shredding without distortion.

I've always considered "noodling" just mindlessly running through a scale, I'm not sure there's any specific definition though..

What Sweetness said, superfluous soloing for its own/showing offs sake that doesn't particularly serve the purpose of the piece in question.

To me it's soloing without a sense of direction. Like it doesn't have a clear order or a beginning, middle, and an end.

 

The notes don't really connect well enough to form a cohesive bigger idea that serves the purpose of the song as a whole.

 

Basically Bumble's 14 years solos. :tongue2:
