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

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.

Izzy called Slash a noodler. but izzy is pretty sparse.


Ides Of March, Berlin, Atlas Shrugged, Oh My God, Silkworms , Down By The Ocean (Izzy), Soul Monster, Seven , The General , Thyme , Quick Song, Zodiac. You know you should believe!

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:

Or Robin's November Rain solo. Or DJ's This I love solo. :lol:
