Im the in the middle too, when I write I usually just go for feel and have an idea for a song and go for that.
i really only go for the theory stuff, when Im writing leads/solos have a cool idea for a theory based thing or am stuck

^^ Same here. I only go by ear, which works much of the time, but obviously limits me.

I have little clue of what I'm doing when jamming other than matching the tune I wanna jam to.
I dont even know what I'm tuned to....C..D...who knows?

I just know I can eventually find a majority of what I'm attempting.

this is a real pain in the backside.
I used to play with 100% feel, know no theory, making it up as i went along, and never knowing what i was going to play next. but I found I couldnt "feel" quick enough to do faster licks, so at the moment, I write solos by improvising them really really slow, and then play them a lot faster memorised.
so my stuff begins very feel, and then because im playing it so slow and preparing it, i keep changing little bits. and basically, because everything i do is planned, the answer is niether. ive lost my niche for improvisation.
the same way that you become crap at chess if you only ever play a computer and always use the "undo" button. when it comes to real life you cant tell your opponent "hold on, lets go back 5 moves to where I did that, and ill do this instead"

but I'll have it sorted in a few months

This is probably the wrong forum......

But I picked technical. Feel is natural, so I focus on complex rhythms for my riffs.

Even though I don't play gutiar for a really long time (something like half an year only) I still choose Feel. When I'm doing something new, I care of doing it as I imagined it... though I am perfectly aware of the fact that being tech is important. I've still got much to learn.
