I have a little repertoire of songs I can play solo and I've worked up tunes with other musicians. In working with others I've been given a part to play in a song and I can do it with reasonable consistency. In that case I'd say the music follows my memory. Then there's situations where I sit in with some musicians who have some blues stuff they cover and I'm expected to supply some backing to the chord progressions and at some point provide a solo. I can do this without even having practiced with the band before. This is because I've studied blues progressions in depth and stolen riffs from all my favorite harmonica players. So I just improvise and it usually works. In such instances I suppose you could say my memory follows the music.
