#beginquote# 7. With lead guitar solos, or any solos for that matter, do they have to follow again the same 4/4 beat pattern if the song is in 4/4? Do solos always last for a certain length of bars, or can they end/start at any beat of any bar? Do the notes in solos follow the time signature of the song? If in 4/4 time, do the notes of a solo follow formations of triplets, quarternotes, etc, and do sustains and other guitar tricks also have to stay in beat? Solos still follow the constraits of music rules, they just do them at thier own pace. They also are spontanious as opposed to written out, but still they follow the pulse of the music. You COULD, perhaps play a solo in 3/4 in a 4/4 song, but it would just sound strange or musical taste would make you play it to fit the 4/4 patterns. #endquote#
