If you don't have the guitar skills to dazzle your audience and want to focus on your singing, what do you do for the solos when performing alone, like at a winery or coffee house?
My whole act is based on this and it works. I use a Shadowstomp to maintain a kick with my foot. I also hit more than one string as I solo the ones I want, to make it sound like I am playing with another guitarist.
