Hey all,

On the subject of fills, do you guys dedicate time to learning and practicing set fills, or let them happen naturally while playing?

I'm trying to avoid pre-learning fills (especially when they're ones that someone else has come up with), and come up with them off the cuff whilst in the music, as it feels more authentic.

I'm really struggling with this though, and often end up playing sloppily, I guess due to not being able to think/decide quick enough in the moment?

I'm wondering if you guys have tips on how to work on fills without the whole learning and regurgitating method if that makes sense at all?
